This subject is a core subject for students commencing their studies in architecture and landscape architecture. It builds an awareness of key cultural and environmental design issues, value systems and ethical positions as they relate to the built environment. Students develop this understanding of how architecture and landscape architecture influence, and are influenced by, cultural and environmental issues through a diverse range of presentations by academics, leading practitioners, researchers and institutional representatives. The primary aim of these presentations is to discuss the role the architect and landscape architect plays as agents of societal change.

Studio workshop sessions introduce selected techniques of mapping and analysis of information, and develop skills in data collection, observation and analysis. These workshop exercises prepare first-year students for the diverse responsibilities and opportunities offered by architecture and landscape architecture as creative professions.
