After 30,000 students registered for the class in 2013, Gary Hack, Jonathan Barnett and Stefan Al will be re-offering Designing Cities. This free online course explores visionary and practical concepts of city design and planning, past and present, and how design can address such looming challenges as urban population growth, climate change and rising sea levels. Participants will be encouraged to make proposals for city design and development, starting with their own immediate environment. The course starts September 14.
