The undergraduate program presents “Density: Through Thick and Thin,” a 3-part series of discussions on resurging issues about urban density in the 21st century.
As we face pressures of global population explosion, measurable and alarming ecological stress and related urbanization, as well as projected food and clean water shortages, the symposia offer an arena to discuss the current and near future status of the fundamental quality of built environments.
