Content

This subject aims to provide a high level of designedly thinking regarding the foundations of the skill and knowledge base related to urban design. Students will be introduced to a range of processes applied to the analysis and synthesis of the urban environment. On completion of the unit students should be able to: understand the urban condition through scale, built form, land-use and movement; have an appreciation for determining when a more innovative design might fit; develop an ability to distinguish between well designed projects and poor design, and, through an awareness of precedent, develop an appreciation for how contemporary design solutions can be adopted in a historical context.
