SOC 24016 - Urban Planning: Principles And Practices

Taught at a host institution. This course introduces students to the subject of urban planning. It will first discuss the significance and objectives of urban planning, relating the rise of this profession to the changing configuration of our increasingly urbanizing world. Then, drawing upon the experiences of the United States and, at the same time, making references to similar issues in Hong Kong, the major theoretical concepts and policy debates relating to contemporary urban planning practices will be deliberated. These include competing planning theories on the planning process, the legal basis of planning as well as the interrelationships between planning, politics and social concerns. The questions of land use planning, urban design, and urban renewal will be highlighted and experiences from the United States and Hong Kong will be discussed and contrasted to illustrate the complexity of urban planning issues in different geographical, political and social settings.
