Subject outline

Building on the foundational concepts introduced in semester 1, you will engage in a series of practicums, a site visit and a simple planning project to gain an introduction to plan making processes and learn how they connect with our physical environments.  This subject is designed to connect theory to practice, and in doing so, reveal your questions about how, why and what it means to plan well, so you can apply an analytical approach and critical questioning in your later years of study.
