City Seminar: “Variations on Urbanism and Planning: Johannesburg perceived from a Toronto Perspective"

Students will present a critical analysis of Johannesburg’s post apartheid urban development along a variety of dimensions including growth boundaries, global competitiveness, housing, and transportation. They will conclude with a discussion on post-apartheid landscapes, and lessons that can be drawn from Johannesburg's growth dynamics for the GTHA.
