Urban Planning Student Work
International Placemaking – Fall 2010
Students in Professor Clara Irazabal's International Placemaking course spent the semester addressing contemporary planning issues from across the globe. The students developed semester-long group projects which critically analyze and compare the nuanced differences across planning contexts, assess the level of effectiveness of planning approaches used in addressing such conditions and their resulting place-based effects, and envision better planning practices to make progress in the attainment of more just cities. The abstracts of their projects are linked below:
- The Tourism-Preservation Dialectic in Havana, Cuba
- Migrant Labor, Management, and Mega-Events: The 2008 Beijing Olympics as a Case Study of Equity and Politics in a Burgeoning Market Economy
- After Doi Moi and the WTO: Policy Implications for Informal Ha Noi
- Housing Subsidies in Santiago Chile: Chilean Miracle?
- Imagining Dakar: Political Disconnect, Public Discontent, and Urban Mobility
During the 2010-2011 academic year, Methods courses will include: Introduction to GIS, Advanced GIS, Fundamentals of Urban Digital Design, Presentations as Strategic Planning Tools, Negotiations for Planners, and Techniques of Project Evaluation.
