The goal of this class is to introduce geodesign principles to students. Geodesign is a design and planning method which tightly couples the creation of design, landscape and city planning with simulations informed by geographic contexts, systems thinking and digital technology (adapted from - Flaxman 2012). The objective of this course is to introduce the fundamental theory, concepts, and frameworks of geodesign put forward by Dr. Carl Steinitz (Steinitz 2012). Students will become familiar with the geodesign process by reviewing case studies including specific case study applications.
