Visions of the City is a student-run, faculty-directed seminar for students culminating their Bachelor’s of Arts in Environmental Design degree. The central purpose of the course is to read, reflect upon, and discuss books (as distinguished from journal articles or professional reports) on urban and environmental topics spanning classic visions, biographies of visionaries, and contemporary visions. Through the course, students experience reading full-length classic or contemporary works in the field both (for immediate inspiration and motivation for lifelong reading) and culminate the academic program having read, digested, reflected on, and been exposed to seminal works in urban planning and environmental design.
