Deconstructivist Zoning: The Sixth Generation of Zoning in America
Concerned about the sustainability of the built environment? Deconstruct the zoning laws.
A century of constructing zoning laws in America has resulted in illogical, disconnected, and homogenous built environments that are not environmentally or economically sustainable. Yet we keep hoping that doing much of the same will yield different results. This course examines how deconstructing zoning leads to more economically sustainable development outcomes.
In partnership with AIA|DC
