Jointly administered by the Department of 城市规划与设计 and the Department of Landscape 建筑, the program leading to the Master of 景观建筑 in Urban Design (MLAUD) is intended for individuals who have completed a five-year undergraduate professional program in landscape architecture or its equivalent.
学生们 enrolled in the GSD's professional programs in 景观建筑 are also encouraged to apply for a concurrent Urban Design degree, for which an individual curriculum may be arranged.
Taking advantage of the remarkable international make-up of the student body, the Urban Design Program establishes a common intellectual ground among architects and landscape architects who intend to practice as urbanists. The program provides knowledge of urban theories, design techniques and procedures that challenge students to rethink design within the climate of economic speculation, political negotiation and democratic struggle that often characterizes urban development today. Included are courses in history, theory, law, planning, public policy, and real estate finance that provide students with a broad understanding of the forces that shape urbanization at both local and global scales. Particular emphasis is placed upon developing mastery in urban design through studio work and an elective thesis sequence in the second year of study.
