The Human City: Design With People (participatory design)
URBANST145/EARTHSYS138/IPS274, an interdisciplinary service-learning course, offers students a comparative approach to investigating sustainable cities, focusing on urbanization in the world’s two largest economies and biggest emitters of greenhouse gases: China and the United States. We explore the major drivers of urbanization and initiatives to promote more sustainable growth. We investigate tradeoffs and choices related to land use, energy and water resources, and the need to balance economic vitality, environmental quality, cultural heritage, and social equity.

Activities:
• Collect more fieldwork in Bay Area and Beijing with input from SF and BJ partners
• Collaborate remotely with ESSEC in France, adding Paris as case study
• Build prototypes / introduce site-specific or service design intervention in SF and BJ
• Reflect on prototypes and lessons learned

Deliverables
• Produce material for book and digital multimedia project
• Summary of student work, observations, prototypes, outcomes
• Persuasive case studies and actionable policy recommendations
• Commentary/reflection on methodology of teaching this type of class

2) Book launch and symposium; invite Tsinghua students to Stanford – Early 2015

Student Learning Outcomes
• Understand and measure urban sustainability through environmental, economic, social and cultural indicators
• Test theories of tactical urbanism, insurgent public space
• Collaborate successfully in multinational teams, across different disciplines
• Create and evaluate an opportunity for participatory design
