Learn how to identify thoroughfares where traffic calming is a high priority, identify desired thoroughfare dimensions based on urban context, and create a redesigned thoroughfare. 

AICP CM

The purpose of this course is to show how neighborhoods can increase in density in keeping with their character. Students will learn how to find areas that are close to civic uses, commercial areas, and public transit; propose a level of urban intensity (transect zone) for each area; determine what kinds of units would be appropriate in each location; and create a Sketchup model with varying density layers.

AICP CM

The purpose of this course is to evaluate land-use diversity in a neighborhood, propose design interventions that would support and enhance a healthy mix, evaluate distances between where people live and what people need, and propose design interventions that would help increase desirable proximities. Students will find areas with different kinds and levels of mix, and then propose design strategies for areas of low housing mix. They will then compare areas for access to the most desirable facilities and places and propose corresponding infill strategies.
