Urban Design and Urban Deve­lo­p­ment are app­lied fields. To com­pen­sate for an ambi­guous set of under­ly­ing theo­ries, this area of exper­tise is best unders­tood over time and when done as real-world pro­jects. The pur­pose of this class is to expose stu­dents to what really hap­pens in com­plex urban deve­lo­p­ment pro­jects. This will help them strike bet­ter balan­ces bet­ween being aspi­ra­tio­nal and prag­ma­tic when working in prac­tice.
This course will con­tain full chro­no­lo­gies of how urban deve­lo­p­ment pro­jects began, matu­red and were exe­cu­ted. Prof. Jain will draw upon his 30-year inter­na­tio­nal expe­ri­ence to describe in detail actual pro­jects covering a range of geo­gra­phies and sca­les. The course’s objec­tive is to help stu­dents under­stand the com­plex pushes and pulls that make good urban out­co­mes so hard to achieve.
