Right now I am studying Urban Design at the Architecture Department of the TU Delft in the Netherlands. I somehow got interested in New Urbanism, mainly because of the more human side of this design discipline, and the special care it takes in designing the public space. The best place to study this discipline is in the US. But.... where should I go? Most of the American courses are aimed at Urban Planning, not at Urban Design. I like planning, but I am mainly focused at the design of the urban built environment. Since I aim to finish my Bsc degree this semester, I am looking for a master course somewhere.
New Urbanism is of course teached at Miami University, but it seems to be taught at the architecture department there, and not even in a special New Urbanism course. But I was thinking maybe one of you guys/girls knows something about a good Urban Design department somewhere?
