SITE PLANNING AND URBAN DESIGN STUDIO
Credit points: 15
In this subject students consider urban challenges and innovation in the context of historical and contemporary urban design. For the first time in world history the majority of humankind now lives in cities, and in cities that are bigger and more complex than any previous historical epoch. The design of cities, the places within them, the relationship of the built form to space and place are critical elements. Students will be assisted to think about the spatial, built form, technological and cultural challenges of our cities for long term sustainability. In this subject students will be required to complete an urban design project.
