HUPO serves the urban planning students at the GSD by organizing a wide variety of events and resources to enhance the educational and professional development of Master of Urban Planning (MUP) students.
We loved seeing so many MUPs in one room tonight! Thanks to everyone who brought their ideas to the table to support the continued growth and improvement of the Urban Planning program at the @harvardgsd. #planning#harvard#progress
MUPs take SF! Urban planners scattered the globe last week doing site visits for studio and project-based courses. In this combined MLA-UPD studio course, titled Phantom Coast: Transforming San Francisco's Eastern Waterfront, students are working to reimagine the use of San Francisco's seawall as more than just a piece of important resilience infrastructure against sea level rise and earthquakes. #urbanplanning#sanfrancisco#tandem#bikes

The Changing Face of Harvard Square
Time: Friday September 29, 2017, 12:30-1:30 pm
Location: Harvard GSD Gund 123, 48 Quincy St.
Harvard Square is seeing many changes to its urban fabric and public spaces. With the redesign of Harvard Square, big parcels of real estate on the market, and plans for a new shopping center, what's the future of Harvard Square? What role can policymakers and urban planners play? What's on the table at City Hall, including the upcoming Harvard Square Zoning Petition, and what impact could this have on the retail landscape? This panel discussion brings policymakers, urban planners and researchers to discuss the overlapping and interconnected issues and players.
Jan Devereux, Cambridge City Councillor
Michael Haggerty, Co-Founder Solo Kota Kita, GSD MUP ’06 / M.Arch '17
