This is a small group project exploring the urban / planning implications of water, food, "nature" (however specifically defined), energy, and communications in the Boston area. Each small group will be assigned an "element" to research and document.
Whole class project—An exploration of the Boston area in two parts, first a small group field documentation of assigned zones, and, second, an in-class session including presentations and discussions of findings across zones and exploration of planning possibilities.
This is a small group project to create a comprehensive "big plan" (of whatever scale) sited in one neighborhood / zone, or a more broad-based "city-wide" plan of a specific element or topic of large-scale urban planning. The deliverables for this project include a group presentation, planning document, and a short individual essay.
Technical workshops are also held at various points throughout the course.
