  • Vale, Lawrence (2001-12)
    Examines the evolving structure of cities and the way that cities, suburbs, and metropolitan areas can be designed and developed. Guest speakers present cases, involving current projects, which illustrate the scope and ...
  • Spirn, Anne Whiston, 1947- (2003-06)
    Examines the evolving structure of cities, the dynamic processes that shape them, and the significance of a city's history for its future development. Develops the ability to read urban form as an interplay of natural ...
  • Frenchman, Dennis M.; Morrow, Greg (2003-12)
    Examines both the structure of cities and ways they can be changed. Includes historical forces that have produced cities, models of urban analysis, contemporary theories of urban design, implementation strategies. Core ...
  • Frenchman, Dennis M.; Rojas, Francisca M., 1976- (2005-12)
    Examines both the structure of cities and ways they can be changed. Includes historical forces that have produced cities, models of urban analysis, contemporary theories of urban design, implementation strategies. Core ...
  • Vale, Lawrence (2003-06)
    This is a seminar about the ways that urban design contributes to the distribution of political power and resources in cities. "Design," in this view, is not some value-neutral aesthetic applied to efforts at urban development ...
  • Ben-Joseph, Eran (2006-06)
    The planning of sites and the infrastructure systems which serve them. Site analysis, spatial organization of uses on sites, design of roadways and subdivision patterns, grading plans, utility systems, analysis of runoff, ...
  • MacLean, Alex; Spirn, Anne Whiston (2006-06)
    This course explores photography as a disciplined way of seeing, of investigating landscapes and expressing ideas. Readings, observations, and photographs form the basis of discussions on landscape, light, significant ...
  • Ben-Joseph, Eran; Vale, Lawrence (2002-12)
    An introduction to the methods of recording, evaluating, and communicating about the urban environment. Through visual observation, field analysis, measurements, interviews, and other means, students learn to draw on their ...
  • Sass, Lawrence (2004-06)
    This is an advanced subject in computer modeling and CAD CAM fabrication in building large-scale prototypes and digital mock-ups within a studio setting. Prototypes and mock-ups are developed with the aid of outside ...
  • Duffy, Francis, 1940-; Tsakonas, Konstantinos G. (2003-06)
    This is an interdisciplinary workshop, not a design workshop in the ordinary sense. It is certainly intended for graduate students in architecture but also for students in the Center for Real Estate (CRE), and for students ...
  • Duffy, Francis, 1940- (2002-12)
    The theme of this Workshop is the design of the changing workplace. The objective of this workshop is to make MIT graduate students fully aware of emerging technological and social trends that are revolutionizing the working ...
  • Sass, Lawrence (2004-06)
    Explores the role of computer visualization as a representational medium. Visualization is widely used in scientific, engineering, and design disciplines to help people understand complex phenomena and constructs. The key ...
  • Sass, Lawrence (2003-06)
    Design Fabrication is an introductory course in the field of advanced computing, prototyping and building fabrication. The class is focused on the relationship between design, various forms of computer modeling both explicit ...
  • Frank, Andrea, 1970- (2004-12)
    Introduction to artistic practice and aesthetic analysis through studio work and lectures. Students communicate ideas and experiences through various media such as sculpture, installation, performance, and video. Projects ...
  • Scher, Julia (2005-12)
    Introduction to artistic practice and aesthetic analysis through studio work and lectures. Students communicate ideas and experiences through various media such as sculpture, installation, performance, and video. Projects ...
  • Zane, Joe (2006-12)
    Introduction to artistic practice and aesthetic analysis through studio work and lectures. Students communicate ideas and experiences through various media such as sculpture, installation, performance, and video. Projects ...
  • Glicksman, Leon (2003-12)
    4.42J (or 2.66J or 1.044J), Fundamentals of Energy in Buildings, is an undergraduate class offered in the Department of Architecture, and jointly in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and the Department ...
  • Glicksman, Leon (2008-12)
    This subject provides a first course in thermo-sciences for students primarily interested in architecture and building technology. It introduces the fundamentals important to energy, ventilation, air conditioning and comfort ...
  • Andersen, Marilyne (2006-12)
    This class provides the tools necessary for an efficient integration of daylighting issues in the overall design of a building. The fundamentals of daylighting and electric lighting are introduced and their relevance to ...
  • Ochsendorf, John Allen (2003-06)
    This course introduces the static behavior of structures and strength of materials. Topics covered include: reactions, truss analysis, stability of structures, stress and strain at a point, shear and bending moment diagrams, ...
