Architecture, Globalization and the Environment

Esther Roseli da Costa Azevedo Meyer
Art and Archaeology, Architecture

Art 250, Architecture, Globalization, and the Environment, analyzes contemporary architecture and its relation to climate change, urbanism, and consequent social problems. Special attention is paid to the erosion of public space, whether due to gentrification, gated communities, outright segregation, or to the devastating impact of war in urban zones in many parts of the world.
