Urban Planning

Urban planners are charged with revitalizing infrastructure, architecture and culture in cities suffering from urban decay. Urban planners also create good sense designs for new city developments. In this program students work as urban planners to analyze their neighborhood, debate neighborhood issues, and develop plans to redesign an area in the neighborhood they determine is most in need.  In the final sessions students build 3-D models of their plans and share them with their peers.
