Content

Architects engage in projects outside their national and cultural boundaries. While this is not new, and while some of the most exciting urban and architectural designs have resulted from these exchanges, the current practices present some crucial differences to precedents. SRA743 extends understanding and develops critical positions in relation to this crucial global architecture and urbanism in order to contribute to a platform for design evaluation. Students will investigate what constitutes trans-national mega projects, and secondly to identify and examine their scope, premise, objective and effects. Students will focus on the analysis of concepts and projects occurring within increasing globalisation in countries across first, second and third worlds; increasing urbanisation in cities; and reconstruction projects in disaster-stricken sites including in Sri Lanka, Phuket, Turkey, Beirut, Baghdad, Sarajevo.
