ARCH 3500/GSVS 3559/ARCH 5500: Sustainable Communities

Phoebe Crisman, Departments of Global Studies and Architecture

-3 credits

This course investigates the principles of sustainable community development—environmental quality, economic health, and social equity—as reflected in buildings, rural landscapes, towns, and cities. Through case studies, class activities and site visits, we will examine how communities impact and improve basic environmental-quality variables such as air and water quality, food supply, mobility, energy, and sense of place.
