Cities and communities are the main venues of key challenges of modern times, which we have to understand and be able to solve by including citizens to enhance sustainable development and quality of life.

A smart city is a city that is based on the needs of its citizens and that uses advanced technologies to promote competitiveness, sustainable development and a better quality of life.

Due to the fact that the process of urbanization is going to intensify, the cities will have to face challenges of sustainable development at different levels: environmental, social and economic, especially in less developed countries where the urbanization level is much greater. It is essential to introduce integrative policy forms for a better quality of life of both urban and rural populations, and for a greater social inclusion.... [-]

The Master of Architecture program’s curriculum has been shaped by the global emphasis on sustainability, factors that impact urbanism, and the hands-on application of the principles of design and technology on materials and construction.

Sustainability

With a global push for a more sustainable world, including buildings that use energy and environmental factors more efficiently to lessen an overall carbon footprint, the focus of many courses reflect the conditions of sustainable design and practice.

Urbanism

Because a degraded urban environment has grave implications for social, economic, cultural, and environmental health, the program pays particular attention to urban settings and urban principles. The complexity of the urban environment requires an interdisciplinary approach to architecture education – one that references economics, public policy, sociology, and regional culture. The program will focus on the practices and principles of preservation and adaptive reuse. The city of Rochester, New York, will serve as an active learning environment for students.... [-]
