The purpose of Disc* Fieldwork is two-fold. On the one hand, students deepen their understanding of the urban process by exploring sites that epitomize the most relevant challenges of urbanization. On the other, students are granted direct access to some of the places where innovative urban solutions are conceived and fabricated. Guided by Bay Area urbanists, students visit a variety of sites, ranging from future regional infrastructure hubs to epicenters of gentrification and social exclusion, to enclaves of wildness and biodiversity in the city.
"The field trips were essential! I really appreciate the multiple layers of urban design we were exposed to."
