This course engages the proposed Green New Deal (H. Res. 109, the “GND”) from
an urban planning perspective, investigating its political bases, technical feasibility,
implementation strategy, and planning and land use impacts. The course approach
concentrates on the socio-technical aspects of the GND as opposed to strictly technical
responses to climate change, to mirror the focus of the proposed legislation itself.
This course is part of the Public Works for a Green New Deal
curricular initiative sponsored by the Temple Hoyne Buell Center for the Study of American Architecture
as a part of their project Power: Infrastructure in America.
