This subject introduces the practice of planning for large urban redevelopment sites. It involves the development by student groups of a masterplan for a selected urban renewal site. Individual students act as independent consultants to the team, each preparing one of the sections of the masterplan, and the team as a whole develops the project concept and rationale. The subject develops students' understanding of urban renewal goals and challenges, the master-planning process, and effective teamwork. The subject also develops students' professional skills, including applying research to practice. Methods of evaluating alternative masterplans are also outlined.
