ARCH71-119: Architecture and Urbanism Studio: Designing the City-Region


This subject is an advanced Architecture and Urban Design project, supported by seminars presented by staff, students, and visiting lecturers and distinguished practitioners. The studio uses South East Queensland and North East NSW as the focus of a practical examination and intervention into regional planning, urban design and architectural interventions issues of regional significance, in the light of global growth in coastal city regions and various efforts to plan for this growth. Where possible, planning and design problems peculiar to cross-border regions will be the focus of the studio.

This Studio is co-delivered with Bond’s Master of City Planning program to understand urban planning strategies and architectural and urban design processes that support the subsequent design of a framework and urban architecture propositions. Those are geared to solve many of the problems that cities are facing, and lead them to prosperity under the goals of sustainable development.
