This subject was formerly known as Urban Design for Planners
Urban design is concerned with the qualities, use, ongoing improvement and management of the public realm such as streets, squares and pedestrian malls. This subject emphasises the development of urban design skills that are of value to urban planners, while critically reflecting on urban design as it is practised. Students will develop understandings of the nature of urban design, and the roles of planners and other professionals in relation to it. The fundamental qualities of urban places are examined from an urban design perspective. These understandings form the basis of skills development in using planning tools to achieve desirable urban design outcomes. An integrated program of lectures, tutorial workshops, fieldwork, and teamwork provide the theoretical and practical basis for developing urban design skills and understandings. Students will undertake hands-on urban design work, while reflecting critically upon the role of urban design, the skills they are developing, and the manner in which planning interconnects with urban design.
This subject aims to enable students to:
