Forces Shaping CRE: The Urban Built Environment After COVID-19

This course examines why humans are densely clustered in places that we call “cities,” a fact that has been true throughout much of recorded history. Cities are now faced with potentially profound changes as a result of one of the largest economic downturns in recorded history, caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The course will address whether long-term economic forces that lead to density and urbanization will prevail over short-term economic fluctuations.
