SSUD71-205: Planning the City Region

Description

‘City regions’ have become the dominant form of urban development worldwide, as polycentric cities replace outdated 20th century notions of a high-rise CBD surrounded by sprawling suburbs.  This subject is an advanced Urban Design and Planning studio, supported by seminars presented by staff, students, visiting lecturers and distinguished practitioners.  The studio uses urban South East Queensland as the focus of a practical examination and intervention into metropolitan regional planning, in the light of global growth in coastal city regions and comparative planning frameworks that optimise long-term urban design outcomes.  The subject gains an interdisciplinary perspective through a partial overlap with the equivalent Architecture studio.
