Web class

Modern society in old structures: London, Paris, Amsterdam. They’re all examples of ancient European cities. They’re all beautiful, because the old city centers show their rich history. However, the cities also have big problems. The medieval infrastructure wasn’t designed for the modern day infrastructure. In this webclass, you’re going to redesign this infrastructure efficiently, but you’ll also have to keep the social needs and consequences in mind.

In this webclass, you’ll work on a case that involves the infrastructure in the old city center of Amsterdam. To do this, you’ll read scientific literature, do map research, and make a plan to improve the city.
