This subject was previously known as MAA403 Urban Design Research Studio.
Students will engage with research to understand theories of urbanism and to stimulate thinking about urban possibilities. They will also be involved in the exploration, development and demonstration of design skills for urban projects, incorporating: the analysis of urban contexts, understanding the role that urban projects play in shaping the public domain and the practice of making speculative urban propositions.
Work Integrated Learning will be incorporated throughout the subject by using a mode of teaching where design activity will take place in workshop situations/ on sites/ simulation of the real world project/ interaction with community and industry etc.
