|Content||This unit serves as a vehicle for understanding cities as they have been traditionally constituted and their modes of transformation. Recognising the city as the primary site for architectural speculation, imaginative projection and realisation are antithetical to both conventional statistical and quantitative analysis typical of contemporary 'urban design'. The unit includes a series of lectures and seminars exploring current issues confronting the city as a symbolic and concrete site for architecture, followed by individual creative work.|
|Outcomes||Students are able to (1) develop a framework for understanding the spatial and architectural manifestations of urban development; and (2) learn to apply theoretical approaches to the study of urban form, architecture in an urban context and urban space.|
|Assessment||Typically this unit is assessed in the following ways: (1) seminar presentation; and (2) project work. Further information is available in the unit outline.|
Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit.
