BAC CityLab Fall 2015


Follow our students as they explore the City of Boston More »


CityLab Intensive immerses all incoming undergraduate and graduate students in a series of field-based exercises centered on the exploration of systems, structures, places, and populations that make up the city of Boston. Interdisciplinary student teams work alongside instructors and practitioners to analyze five critical urban lenses: human comfort, mobility/ circulation, open space systems, built form/development patterns, and social/ cultural systems. As an introduction to the BAC concurrent education experience, students develop a strong sense of curiosity, discovery, and appreciation for learning outside the classroom in an applied manner where collaboration and communication are essential.

This experience is now being developed by an onsite studio, which will focus on approaches to urban design and transportation infrastructure, housing typologies, and placemaking in Medellín's urban context....more.
