This program examines the plans, systems, and designs for urban sustainability from multiple perspectives from transit, bike and ped circulation to renewable energy systems to waste management, land use, and urban planning and landscape/open space design. Relying on lectures, field trips, bike tours, guest speakers, design and planning problems, and reading-the-city exercises, the program shows what lessons can be taken from Europe back to U.S. cities. We will visit 8-10 cities—large and small—in 4-5 countries that have demonstrated a commitment and success in becoming more sustainable; this includes looking in-depth at various deliberate eco-districts and neighborhoods like Vauban, Rieselfeld, Trekronner, Vestra Hamnen, and Hammarby Sjostad, in places like Stockholm, Copenhagen, Malmo, Freiburg, Lucerne, and elsewhere. The importance of strong urban planning principles and strong urban design approaches is studied throughout the summer.
