This subject concerns the design of speculative public landscapes to support emergent public programs occurring as a result of the current condition of rapidly increasing urbanisation, globalisation and increased cost of living. The subject calls on students to consider what current contemporary public life entails and what it might be in the future in light of population growth as well as social and economic pressures. Also to be investigated is how design can support conceived future requirements of public life occurring in a site in inner Sydney.

Students are asked to draw on a range of speculative design methods including but not limited to mapping, drawing, precedent and case studies, speculative models and collage. Students establish their own position on the future of public urban life by drawing on the knowledge gained through in-class activities as well as from the concurrently taught subject 11182 Urbanisms.
