Professor Bodurow is the founder and Director of studio[Ci] and has led the office and defined the methodology “Convergence of Intensity” with her previous research in both the Value Densification Community mapping project [VDCmp] and the Value Densification Community pilot project [VDCpp].
Constance C. Bodurow, Assoc. AIA, AICP is an Assistant Professor of Architecture, Coordinator of the Master of Urban Design Program in Sustainable Urbanism, and Director of studio[Ci] at Lawrence Tech’s CoAD. Professor Bodurow holds two Masters degrees in Architecture and City Planning from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) School of Architecture + Planning.
Professor Bodurow’s funded urban design research is transdisciplinary, integrative, collaborative, and bridges the disciplines of design and geography. She has focused on the role of density – both physical and social and more recently, net zero energy, in sustainable urbanism. Professor Bodurow has generated multiple applied research projects which focus on extreme urban conditions, from the post industrial Shrinking City to the condition of explosive urban growth in the BRIC nations. In the Regional Detroit community, she has advanced funded, community based projects including Value Densification and Convergence of Intensity (Ci), in which she is exploring the form the city might take if re-sizing were purposeful and viewed as the sustainable approach to urban change. The Ci methodology and its associated 4D digital interface proactively designs for the coming together of metrics [criteria] into a spatial convergence.
Professor Bodurows research has been published by Wiley-Blackwell and received peer reviewed dissemination through ARCC, ACSA, ACSP, ESRI, UAA, EUAA, AIA, APA, ICONUS, among others, and has been funded by the AIA, LISC, and the Ford Motor Company Fund.
A registered City Planner and an associate member of the AIA, Professor Bodurow also brings extensive practice experience to the classroom. Her award-winning projects for downtown, district/neighborhood revitalization and regional design and planning include projects in the public, private, and non-profit sectors in Boston, Detroit, and other cities and regions.
