Reinventing Residential Zoning for the Urban Age

Cities all over the world are facing new challenges regarding rising housing demands as the majority of the world’s population becomes urbanized. In many cases, cities are resorting to the ‘quick and easy’ mass-production of residential super-blocks to address the increasing housing demands. But is this model appropriate for all cities, regardless of their environmental, social, political and economic differences? In this seminar students will develop their own responses to this question based on international case study research and analysis. The seminar will provide students with a hands-on opportunity to understand how planning code regulations – specifically residential codes – can shape the design and functioning of future urban neighborhoods.
