S.I.M. City Baltimore - Urban Design Studio

Take a look at the exciting S.I.M. City Baltimore design studio website created by senior undergraduate students from Parsons The New School of Design. S.I.M. stands for sustainable infrastructure models and references the urban design simulation game SIM City. Within this studio the students are creating sustainable design scenarios at the urban block level. They worked in the West Baltimore neighborhood of Harlem Park along with BES researchers, the Baltimore City Sustainability Department planners, Parks & People and community members.

This is a great interactive website which includes many photos and video. Be sure to check it out at this link:http://sce.parsons.edu/studiocourses/BaltimoreStudio2010
