Content

The design projects undertaken in the unit will be based on urban design and strategic planning issues in three areas critical to the future growth of Australia's urban environment: metropolitan urbanism, urbanism on the periphery and regional urbanism. The unit allows students to identify the existing fabric of specific precincts in transition; analyse the artificial and natural boundaries which shape or limit their place setting; and propose a range of sustainable design strategies that resolve areas of discontinuity and open up options for stimulating urban renewal. On completion of the unit students should be able to develop an informed understanding of the place of architecture, landscape and planning within the context of the city, and to explore methodologies for evaluating and responding to an urban context with respect to environmental, economic, community, cultural, and heritage issues.
