Explore the Fringe!

The Urban Fringe is a space of exchange and dialogue between students and Berkeley Planning Journal readers, exploring planning-related issues from a range of perspectives — from transportation, housing, urban design and land-use policy to political science, economics, communications and film. Students are invited to submit short pieces on studio projects, client reports and internship projects, which are published on a rolling basis as an online complement to the annual publication of the Berkeley Planning Journal.
