À propos du cours

Please Note: Designing Cities will close for new learner enrollment on September 30, 2019. Enrolled learners have until March 28, 2020 to complete all graded assignments and earn a Course Certificate. Each module in Designing Cities will focus on a different aspect of city design including: How Today’s City Evolved; The Ideas That Shape Cities; Tools for Designing Cities; Making Cities Sustainable; Cities in the Information Age; Preserving Older Cities; Designing New Cities, Districts and Neighborhoods; The Challenges of Informal Cities and Disadvantaged Neighborhoods; and Visionary Cities. Materials will be presented by the instructors and guest faculty from PennDesign through a series of five or more lessons per module, each typically 10-12 minutes long. The first lesson in each module will be a roundtable discussion among professors Stefan Al, Jonathan Barnett, and Gary Hack introducing the big issues associated with the subject. Each succeeding module will be a self-contained illustrated presentation of a set of ideas and images. There will be a list of suggested readings for those who wish to follow up on the ideas in each module. Everyone enrolled in Designing Cities will be expected to complete 3 assignments. These will be posted on the course site and they will be in the form of peer assessments. There will be a great deal to be learned from the ideas participants submit, reflecting cities of all sizes and circumstances across the globe so once you submit your assignment, you'll be able to see what your peers have done....

good course, however, it was almost impossible to figure out how to do some of the assignments. I have no idea how to do PDF files. Although, I learned some of the key concepts easily.

I like the way what we have learned in this course. The material, concepts & professors. The only issue is with the platform, in the referenced reading, we have to buy all this books?

Thoroughly enjoyed the high level, yet detailed insights provided by this course. I would highly recommend this course to anyone even moderately interested in architecture or those wanting to design their own Utopian city!

This was a very informative course taught by several quality instructors/professors. The diversity of course material and delivery methods which provided a comprehensive understanding of how cities have developed and a variety of influential factors. The course explored a range of topics, including historic city design, popular trends within current city design, technology systems, environmental systems, and more. The project assignments were relevant to the course, however the grading and submittal process required personal initiative to reach out to peers and was not intuitive.

Interesting course showing the complexity and enormous task of the responsibilities involved to accommodate to the well-being of millions of people. People, being a most difficult and stubborn species to please.

Except the peer review system, i liked the course.

After all, a student from one country cannot judge the situation of a city in another country.

A very interesting course. I am just sorry that the bibliography is limited to elementary references. In other courses, access to good references is larger and up to date, allowing students to go much further if they want to.

It has a lot of information each vedio, and a lot of terms. It's hard for a non-English speaker. But it's good and clear.

Good course.

Theoretical content does not overshadows practical aspects of the course, so it interesting to learn (from start to the end). Great value for your time if you want to learn variety of aspects associated with City Design.

You will have a good idea of what should be kept in mind when planning a city.
