|Content||This unit is concerned with the implementation of complex urban design projects. Weekly seminars explore the key mechanisms of the design process, development process and project implementation, with invited guests presenting an account of important urban projects in Perth. These talks provide insights into the factors that shape the ultimate form of the built environment and stimulate debate about critical design and implementation decisions. Through these presentations, students are exposed to a wide range of urban design scales and situations, to the unexpected deviations that routinely modify an urban design process and to the various techniques used to resolve these issues.|
|Outcomes||Students are able to (1) familiarise with the origins and context of key urban development initiatives; (2) familiarise with the role of urban design in the implementation of major urban design projects; and (3) understand the processes of design development and project delivery, the interaction of different disciplines and mechanisms during these project stages and their influence on urban design outcomes.|
|Assessment||Typically this unit is assessed in the following ways: (1) essay; and (2) seminar presentation. Further information is available in the unit outline.|
Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit.
