Urban Planning

We collect materials on the history of urban planning and design, as well as contemporary issues in sustainability, land use, environmental studies, transportation, urbanism, social equity, globalization, and urbanization. The urban planning collection reflects the growth and development of the Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning.

The study of Detroit and communities of southeast Michigan is an important component of the Taubman College curriculum, and our collection strives to meet those needs.
