School of Design - Students in Environmental Design and Planning visit Bologna and learn about the origin of the 100 mile diet, organic food and wine production practices, in Lucca they study a Renaissance manuscript that prescribed sustainable agricultural landscape design and siting practices and in both Italy and Spain the students learn about alternative heating and cooling practices using microclimatic design. The students study regional food production throughout Italy and Spain including balsamic vinegar, olive oil, wines, cheeses such as parmigiana reggiano (sp) and meats such as sienese pork. We also compare practices across regions and cultures. Students also learn about brownfield reclamation, urban renewal and adaptive architecture as sustainable practices in Barcelona."
