Aaron’s presentation (and Todd too) highlighted significant environmental factors influencing and shaping the built environment in Berkeley. For example: zoning; building heights; open views; sustainability; downtown development; ride sharing; how some projects of economic values can be justified despite their environmental impacts; (A) to (F) continuum of traffic/movement flow; . . . and urban management. In one page, (i) pick two of the of the most significant factors in your views and provide a critical overview on what you like or dislike about them, (ii) can they contradict the social and ecological values discussed in earlier classes, and (iii) what recommendations you may suggest to the city improve that.

As a metaphor, Todd presented how the UC Berkeley is similar to Texas or DC. Aaron’s elaborated on that too. Explain how the campus planning overlap with the surrounding out-of-campus built environment. Elaborate on how the UC-Berkeley investment can have an impact on the downtown. Lastly, give one suggestion to improve this relationship.
