The focus of this studio will be on the production of an urban design vision at the scale of an sustainable urban district or new settlement. Students will develop principles and practices for urban design at this scale: morphological and typological analysis, urban design frameworks, functional mix, spatial practices, pedestrian networks, density, place identity and iconography. This studio will have an emphasis on relating the fields of urban design and urban planning. This is the capstone subject for the Urban Design and Planning Major of the Bachelor of Environments and the subject will conclude with an exhibition.
