Research in Regenerative Urbanism addresses climate change, resilience, sustainable and low impact policy and design practices in small towns, cities, and global metropolitan regions.

Community Engagement research explores distribution of costs, benefits, power and privilege among multiple and diverse publics in policy, planning and design.

Design Exploration integrates design and scholarship through award winning exhibitions, design/build projects, built landscapes, and plans.

Our faculty investigate policy, planning, and design issues in the identification, interpretation, and conservation of the living heritage of cultural landscapes.

Regional scale landscape planning promotes the thoughtful achievement of human and natural needs while linking edge, node and corridor across multiple scales.

Our faculty are leaders in investigating entrepreneurship, development and redevelopment, technological change, and the reuse of industrial space to meet new social and economic needs.
