Part of MIT's innovative OpenCourseWare Project, that provides materials from MIT classes to the public on the web, the site provides materials from a course that examined the forces that act upon urban areas, and how the areas develop in response. Topics include public participation in development, redevelopment, urban design, the art of cities, the environmental and social effects of cities, and the ideal visions we have of urban areas. The site provides extensive recommended readings and samples of student work on Boston and New Delhi.
