The City Scale

This week on city design focuses on the interdependencies of the physical form of cities and their inclusive qualities. Access to necessary public resources or services, such as education and affordable housing, is an essential part of inclusive city design.

Based on case studies, you will learn how to analyze and assess the physical form and its qualities employing methods of urban spatial analysis. Emphasis is on the accessibility of local urban centers, connectivity between neighborhoods, and urban typology.

In this week’s assignment you will draw or describe the spatial layers using words and diagrams, and interpret relations between the physical layers and the distribution of income groups in the city.
