ARTS 372 - Great Cities: Urban Form and Meaning
Cities function as series of forms and spaces that direct people’s movements and states of mind. Some urban forms arise unplanned, from patterns of usage and individual need. Some are planned to produce specific kinds of impact. Sometimes those plans succeed; always they remain to some degree unfinished. In all cases, the spatial arrangements of cities tell important stories that we cannot help but experience and that we can learn to understand. Each offering of the course focuses on a single city, such as London or Rome.
