Designing the Urban Ecological Future

CCNY Master of Landscape Architecture students explore design, planning, and policy-making to promote civic engagement in complex urban landscape systems, and to advocate for social and environmental equity in response to globalizing economic forces and diminishing natural resources. The program prepares students to meet the challenges of future city design within the dynamic environmental scenario of climate change and the exploding growth of metropolitan areas around the nation and the globe. The program’s position within New York City’s flourishing design community offers students a unique vantage point to participate in socio-environmental design discourse. Our students and faculty are breaking new ground and winning awards.
