Dialogue in Art, Architecture, & Urbanism: Course Description

To modern artists, structural designers and architectural engineers, urban areas are much more than places to live and work: cities are large-scale artistic statements as well. This free course encourages students to visualize cities in new ways by combining visual design, urban planning, architecture and other related disciplines. Lectures and group discussions focused on planned cities around the world, such as Brasilia, Brazil, and Las Vegas, Nevada. Professor Antonio Muntadas also covers urban space recycling projects like Boston's 'Big Dig' and New York City's Ground Zero. Students in the MIT course collaborated to create multimedia urban intervention proposals that incorporate artistic ideas and architectural principles. This graduate-level class is designed for students interested in a Master of Science in Visual Studies.

This OpenCourseWare includes student projects and video of class presentations, as well as a detailed course description. If you'd like to learn more about this free course, visit the urban art and architecture design course page.
