ARCH10-124: Cities: People and Place


This subject will investigate cities that are renowned for their rich urban life, quality of public space, sense of community, efficient public transport systems, climatical appropriateness, spatial complexity and low carbon footprint.  A fundamental understanding of typology, scale, grain, public realm, environment, experience, community and civility will be synthesised with complex issues of urbanisation and fundamental theories and methods of city planning and analysis.  A comparative mapping analysis with an emphasis on the social, economical, political, climatic, historical, cultural and geographical determinants of their urban morphology will also be undertaken. Students will work individually and in teams through workshops and exercises to develop content awareness and application.
