In-depth research workshop on “Health and Urbanism” initiative, developed as a collaboration between the MIT Center for Advanced Urbanism, and American Institute of Architects. Students will conduct research at the intersection of design, urban planning, and public health to develop contemporary insights about future urban form and infrastructural adaptation. Five urban environments will be chosen as laboratories for research, analysis, invention, and ultimately the development of health metrics for new design proposals. Students will travel to meet with a variety of metropolitan agencies to gather and geographically analyze public health data as part of their proposals. Limited enrollment.
Open to undergraduates.
