Urban Design Studio Field Trip
(for students in their 5th year) - As part of the course requirements for ARCH521 Urban Design Studio, all students in their 5th year of study participate in the annual urban design field trip. The purpose of this 10-day trip is to help prepare the studio for the following semester-long urban design project. Towards this aim, the studio visits a variety of historically significant towns and cities, which exhibit some of the best urban form in the United States. In addition, the trip takes the students to several recent New Urban developments under construction. Venues on past field trips have included Savannah (Georgia), Charleston and Beaufort (South Carolina), Mariemont (Ohio) and new communities such as Habersham and I'On (South Carolina), Norton Commons and Park DuVal (Kentucky) as well as City West in Cincinnati (Ohio).
