In this course participants will explore strategies to create innovation communities where all resources and amenities required for daily life are in close proximity, allowing people to live, work, play, and exchange ideas in walkable, compact, and vibrant neighborhoods. Participants explore how new digital feedback technologies will allow distributed and dynamic urban systems to replace static and inefficient centralized systems, thereby greatly reducing resource consumption and increasing quality of life. New urban design processes include agile urban design methodologies, emerging technology, public policy, and inclusive decision-making.
