Urban planning lecturer wins 2012 Pritzker Fellowship
A 2012 Pritzker Fellowship has been awarded to Walker Wells
, an urban planning lecturer at the UCLA Meyer and Renee Luskin School of Public Affairs. The fellowship was given by the Pritzker Fund for Environment and Sustainability Education, which was established to support both teaching and curriculum development at the UCLA Institute of the Environment and Sustainability.
Wells intends to use the fellowship to support his summer course on green urbanism, “Introduction to Sustainable Architecture and Community Planning.”
"By applying concepts like ecosystem services and tools like green building, complete streets, renewable energy generation, and green infrastructure, students develop a proposal to remake a portion of Los Angeles as a green urbanist place," Wells said.
