Design Integration Lab: Urban Environments builds on the content of Living Cities and City Form and Development. It introduces students to the concept of 'place' and the planning and design interventions that impact public places. The unit will focus on one particular location chosen for its complexity in terms of the range of contemporary issues within an urban context. Developing urban analysis and design skills and enhancing strategic planning knowledge, students will investigate a location and seek to design a public space, including different built forms and elements, based on their own strategic plan. There is a strong element of fieldwork embedded in the urban analysis section of the unit. The outputs will be developed while working on individual and group tasks. Students will be challenged as if in a work environment of professionals looking to resolve urban issues.
