About

The course addresses the methodology, tools and techniques of design and planning practice through innovative design analysis, critical mapping, production, representation, and communication in the evolution of the built environment. The iTown Design Studio will provide students the opportunity to work in conjunction with a community in developing a long-range place based community vision. Through the process of complex critical mapping exercises and analysis of the urban and natural environment over time, students will understand the relationship and production of human settlement form. Students will then learn how social, cultural, political, economic, and ecological forces shape built environments. The primary objective of this class is to understand the process of Indigenous Planning as an agency in generative place making. Students will spend a total of 2 weeks in field sessions centered in both Quito and Cuenca. For more information please contact: Dr. Theodore Jojola or Dr. Laura Harjo tjojola@unm.edu
