11522 Master Class Urban Design




This subject offers students an opportunity to work alongside a guest instructor of international standing, who has demonstrated both a high degree of recognised design excellence and a strongly articulated position in research and practice within the field. The subject focuses on an intensive design workshop presented and curated by the invited guest architect, urban designer or theorist. It offers students an opportunity to develop particular skills relevant to the research interests of the guest instructor(s). The subject involves both group based and individual study and is held in seminar and intensive mode examining topics and design responses within the wider area of urban design. Students explore a particular position on an aspect of urban design and develop the tools and understanding to apply a range of design techniques used by the guest instructor to creatively execute a focused design project or study. This subject investigates focused issues and processes of urban design directed towards a short study, prototype or design proposal. The subject also includes software training, research background, reading seminars and/or other tutorial based sessions as necessary, to prepare students for the intensive block teaching weeks.
