Event description

Description

Please join the University of Sydney School of Architecture, Design and Planning for the opening of an exhibition of student research which highlights students' studio work on understanding housing and alleyway adaptation and transformation in an informal settlement (kampung) undertaken as part of the urban and regional planning unit,

Understanding the Informal City presents the work of 19 Sydney School of ADP postgraduate students from the Master of Urban and Regional Planning, Urbanism, Urban Design, and Architecture, plus 9 postgraduate students from the Master of City and Regional Planning, Institute of Technology Bandung (ITB) University, who immersed themselves in an urban kampung (village) in Bandung, Indonesia, from Thursday 29 March to Wednesday 4 April, 2018.

Working with academic staff of the urban disciplines of the Sydney School of ADP and the School of Architecture, Planning and Policy Development, ITB University, and the local community of the Lebak Siliwangi kampung, students identified via studio and fieldwork (i) the patterns and principles by which the form, structure and servicing of housing and alleyways is adaptive to local ‘bottom up’ rules of urbanism in an informal settlement, and (ii) the implications of these human scale urbanism patterns for ‘formal’ slum and settlement upgrading. The exhibition makes an important contribution to understanding the making and shaping of the ‘Informal City’ which is now a normal part of the urbanisation process.
