About

The purpose of this Community Design and Planning program at the SUNY - College of Environmental Science and Forestry is to address design, planning and research with regard to human settlements including discrete traditional communities such as cities, towns, hamlets, and their hinterlands. 

Overview

The studios, seminars and lecture courses provide introductory and advanced exploration into the theories, principles and practices of design, planning, preservation, and revitalization, as well as the search for new paradigms. 

Key Features 

  • The courses in the Community Design and Planning program at the SUNY - College of Environmental Science and Forestry are supported by a wide range of electives in departments at the College of Environmental Science and Forestry and Syracuse University. 
  • There are also a significant number of opportunities for public service and research in the communities of New York state and beyond.

Programme Structure

  • This area of study is especially appropriate in an era that calls for the redefinition of the American city, the retrofitting of the post-WWII suburb, the conservation and rejuvenation of rural and regional landscapes, and the exploration of traditional and new design paradigms that create sustainable symbiosis of community, ecology and place. 
  • The courses explore how to design and plan the socially interactive, environmentally sound, aesthetically pleasing settlement patterns that engender a strong sense of place and of citizenship.
