Credits:

The course aims at introducing simultaneously to the students the concepts of `urbanization\u2019 and `urbanism\u2019 across space and time. The process, determinants/generations and resulting patterns would be discussed. In a limited way, the effort is to show how cities are shaped, at once by the dynamics of a number of forces \u2013 economic, social and political \u2013 and briefly how the theory and practice of urban planning and design has endeavored to synchronize itself with the ever- changing urban reality.

The course will be conducted using a mix of faculty lectures, reading and student presentations.
A high level of classroom participation is expected, which is reflected in the method of evaluation.
Requirements
(from students):
Readings, Presentations and Paper.
Evaluation :
By course faculty.
