URBS 310 - Urban Field Course

Unit(s): 4

‘It’s time to walk! As urbanists, we cannot deeply know a city or a region unless we’ve studied the streets, watching for the signs of the past left in sidewalk imprints and abandoned infrastructures. In this class, we’ll walk the Bay Area, looking for evidence of the political geographies of the region, manifest in signage, architecture, and the vernacular landscapes of our neighborhoods. This course offers an overview of local history, paired with lessons in the skill of seeing history and politics in everyday urban spaces. This course will take us over the hills and valleys of the Bay Area, with an emphasis on San Francisco.’
