PLX 333 – City Building: Planning for Non-Planners Fall 2017 _____________________________________________________________________________ GPA weight: 1.00 Prerequisites: None. Course not available to students in Urban and Regional Planning (all programs) or Architecture. Weekly Lecture: 3 hours Instructor Sean Hertel [email protected] Time and Location Wednesdays, 3:10 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. KHS 251 Office Hours Wednesdays, 12:30 p.m. – 1:30 p.m. SBB 446 (4thFloor, 105 Bond Street) _____________________________________________________________________________ Description Canada is an urban nation: almost eighty percent of this country’s population lives on two per cent of our land area. Yet who speaks for cities? This course uses the lens of city planning to examine how we manage and plan for change through a focus on the environment, social and physical elements of creating healthy cities. It will also discuss current issues facing cities and metropolitan regions as urbanists challenge both the process and the way things have always been done. Methodology This course is designed to familiarize students with cities and how cities influence, and are influenced by, the theory and practice of planning and other phenomena (e.g. political systems, markets, climate, etc.). To that end, and to reflect the complexity and diversity of the subject, the course methodology is a hybrid of academic and experiential learning to both establish and challenge students’ notions of what cities are, should or could be, and the role of informal and formal planning. Learning and Grading Active student engagement, both inside and outside of class, is important for a rewarding learning experience and academic success. This includes keeping up with current events (e.g. monitoring planning/development issues at City Hall, reading the “city” section of a local paper, etc.), having an open and curious mind (i.e. ask good questions about how cities work, and the role of planning), and observing things in your everyday life a little more closely (e.g. the length and mode of your commute, a curious building or site you pass frequently, etc.). Please take note of your observations and questions, and share them in class if you are comfortable doing so.
