URBS 320 - Mapping the Middle Landscape

1 unit(s)
A majority of Americans today live, work and shop in an environment that Leo Marx has termed “the middle landscape”: the suburban and exurban area between city and countryside. This reading and research seminar investigates some of the middle landscape’s peculiar spatial products, such as master planned communities, mega-malls and ethnoburbs. The investigation will focus on the physical environment as well as the general attitudes, fears and economic forces that shaped this environment. After a series of introductory lectures and discussions, students will produce detailed case studies, using a variety of mapping techniques. Mr. Armborst.

Not offered in 2014/15.

One 3-hour period.
