For the first time, in history, the majority of human beings live in urban regions. Although cities are among the
most complex human-made systems, they are unfortunately
environmentally, economically and socially unsustainable. How can we change this? LETS  discusses an undergraduate architectural design studio, Future Cities, which pushed
for an environmentally holistic design process, moving past the idea of single, object-like buildings. The studio taught
various digital and research methodologies to aid in the complex
issue of urban form. Emphasis was placed on balancing the huge amounts of data and information that is available in our technological age,
with the need to retain the human  perspective and experience.
