FRANCE: Mobility, Architecture, & Urbanism (Faculty-led) Spring '14

A diverse group of graduate and undergraduate students will visit sites in France where new projects related to urban mobility are recently constructed or under construction. The students will document these sites, meet with French students and professors, and explore scenarios for future development.
