Fall/Spring semester

Current changes in our climate require an innovative response to the way we build our urban environments. Re-framing the way urban evolution and nature is thought of, this course explores how the holistic integration of blue and green infrastructures, renewable energy, waste management, digital technology, and agriculture can provide healthier, more resilient, and smarter cities.

Integrated Climate Change Planning is developed through a series of mobile classes, case studies, design workshops, and field studies, both in Copenhagen, Denmark, and in Bordeaux, France. It is an open invitation to abandon comfortable academic distinctions, further a holistic dialogue, and to stimulate the creation of concrete solutions for our cities.
