The Living City
This course introduces the concept of cities as an eco-system to frame assessments of urban sprawl, energy consumption, waste, and the built environment. A major focus of the course is to investigate ways in which the built environment can have environmental impacts both inside and outside city boundaries. In addition, existing urban behaviours are shown to challenge the concept of the sustainable city. PREREQ: successful completion of a minimum of 9 ENVI/ENSC credits. (lec 3) cr 3.
