AH/US 360 - The City as a Place to Live: The Barcelona Experience
To truly live in our city means to expand the limits of our homes. To understand this concept, we will study the social aspects of public spaces and the importance of their form and qualities to help us feel one with the city we live in. The course will focus on the characteristics of different public spaces and the activities that take place in them. Throughout the course, we will explore themes in city urban development and learn to understand how it affects public spaces in both Europe and America. We will then distinguish the advantages of each. Barcelona will serve as a case study for the European perspective.
