This subject was formerly called Strategic Plan Making.
Strategic planning is a task undertaken in a range of professional contexts, but lies at the heart of plan making within urban planning. In a studio environment, this subject introduces the student to the multiple forces (e.g. demographic and economic) driving city growth, the analytical skills (e.g. GIS mapping) for strategic analysis, and the strategic planning responses at the metropolitan and local scales. The course begins with a hands-on analysis of the strategic planning processes and outcomes. This is followed by an examination of the specific strategic issues that need urban planning responses in a number of Australian and international examples. The third part of the subject will focus on planning innovations in searching for a solution to the strategic planning issues. The experience of Australian cities will be used as a laboratory for discussion and analysis, but strategic issues and planning innovations are explored in a broader and international context. Students will have opportunities to demonstrate their learning outcomes by doing individual projects, and also by doing a group project. The latter is an important component of cohort building in Urban Planning at the University of Melbourne.
This subject aims to enable students to:
Two individual projects:
One group project with a maximum of 3000 words and graphic posters due in week 12 (50%).
