Cities are amazing, complex places. Helping so many people live healthy, happy lives in one place is part of the work of urban designers and architects. Use your talent and creativity to create unique urban spaces that make city living better for everyone.
More than half the world’s population lives in urban issues and that percentage is expected to grow in the coming decades. With more and more people living in cities, the challenges of housing, security, recreation, and healthy living (to name just a few) will be tackled by planners, designers, and architects.
In this course, students will explore the role of designers, architects, and urban planners in making cities better places to live. After learning how to use Tinkercad and taking part in a design process, they will research some of the common urban issues facing cities around the world. They will then use their own ideas and research to design an urban space that seeks to improve urban life by addressing – through design – specific urban issues.
