About this Unit
This unit will situate learning in the context of the Global City. Projects will be used to investigate scenarios that are common to the contemporary condition of the developing world and the expanding metropolis in various international contexts. Students will either travel to international sites, work with international partners, or work remotely on problems beyond the Australian context. Work integrated learning will be a key feature of the Global Cities studio and will involve relevant members of the professional community to help lead studio investigations. Assessments will include complex urban projects at a large scale, developed using the design, communications, technical, and theoretical studies that have underpinned their education. Assessments will be project-based in real world scenarios and will incorporate sustainable strategies of design. Studies will be supplemented by tuition in structural design and will also be informed by concurrent studies in building science.
