This subject introduces the practice of planning for large urban redevelopment sites. It involves urban renewal with fundamental considerations of design-transport-land use integration. Students begin by exploring the purpose of urban redevelopment, and the methods and resources used to plan a large-scale redevelopment. They evaluate real world examples of significant redevelopment projects. Students work with an assigned site, drawing on background research to analyse the site’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. Based on this SWOT, they develop a masterplan proposal. The subject develops students' understanding of urban renewal goals and challenges, the redevelopment process, and teamwork.
