Transcript Title: URBAN PUBLIC SPACE 
UC QTR Units - Division: 6.0 - Upper Division 
Course Description: The course examines how and why places, plans, and policies are created, shaped, and reshaped by market, bureaucratic, and political influences as well as technologies at a variety of spatial scales - ranging from the neighborhood and community level to the whole city and the region. The course also discusses the different approaches and strategies that planning and governance professionals have been using to accomplish specific goals and objectives and how this in turn is informed by specific institutional, historical and spatial contexts. The course is thus designed to provide a broad survey of the history of planning and urban governance practice as well as a review of the central issues in planning and place-making theory.
