A parallel center was established at Harvard and the two were intended to be integrated and interdisciplinary in their research approaches.
The key areas of interest included the form and the structure of the city, transportation, technology, controls, the planning process, the urban landscape, and the physical planning problems of developing countries. The center greatly enhanced the research potential for students and faculty of the DCRP. In a new research methods course provided training in the application of modern electronic computing to planning problems. New M. Also in the high demand for planning education by foreign students from developing countries caused the department to examine the very different training such planners would require.
By the heightened interest in urban problems and urban studies throughout MIT increased both the research and teaching capacity of this multidisciplinary field. Within the department, work developed primarily in four directions: city design; planning for developing areas; urban planning and social policy; and quantitative methods. The program offered a fellowship for one year of intensive study to international students, with preference given to persons from developing countries.
The fellowship was aimed at mature candidates who would shape policy in developing nations and enhance their capacity to cope with potential development problems. In the spring of the department inaugurated the Laboratory for Environmental Studies. The name of the department was changed in to the Department of Urban Studies and Planning DUSP to reflect a shift in focus from an emphasis on the structure of communities to a broader concern with issues of urban and regional development.
To meet the rising demand for training in urban services and social policy, the DUSP began to offer courses in the areas of educational planning, health planning, welfare policy, social program development and evaluation, poverty law, and strategies for institutional change. In the same year the Center for Real Estate Development was founded. The objective of the center was to sponsor research programs on issues relevant to the real estate development and investment fields, which offered significant research opportunities for the department.
In the SENSEable City Lab was established with the aim of researching the impact of technology, especially sensors and hand-held electronics on the built environment. On August 29, the Department graduate student orientation began at precisely the moment Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast of the United States. Since then, the challenges associated with New Orleans and the Gulf Region have engaged the substance of many of our subjects, teaching and long-term association with region and its people.
For over a decade and a half our students and faculty have been involved both with early planning issues on the ground as well as forming long standing relations with government entities and local communities.
In the fall of the Department launched the new Community Innovators Lab CoLab , a research and development institute focused on understanding the relationships among reflective practice, community development, and social change. This effort grew out of and continues the previous work and the mission of DUSP by bringing together the best thinking in planning and information technology with the learned experience of community practitioners. In DUSP together with the Department of Architecture and as a part of The School of Architecture and Planning announced a major new research initiative, the Center for Advanced Urbanism CAU , intended to tackle planning, design, construction, and retrofitting of urban environments for the 21st century.
