This studio is part of a series involving students from Melbourne and Nagoya Universities that explore urban structures and component built forms in the two cities: these arise from two cultural paradigms, and design/planning approaches. The method is to select and focus upon urban scale elements of these cities (for example, a superblock) and investigate their morphological characteristics, component architectural typologies, and underpinning principles of spatial organisation and design.
