Harvard GSD Fall 2020 x JSW Realty

Brief

Course : Field studies in Real Estate, Urban Planning & Design
Professor : Richard Peiser

Cities and their surrounding areas are overpopulated, and burdened by a plethora of planning needs. These residential areas need to be adaptable, and responsive to the environment.

This course is designed to provide students with a grassroots understanding of the development challenges to be overcome in order to create contemporary urban environments. It explores areas related to sustainable design and planning, financial feasibility, and real market demand.

Students of this field-study course will develop a proposal for a future JSW Realty township, located on a challenging terrain in Maharashtra, India. They will engage with and explore ways to create design for a post-COVID society.
