Event description
This seminar is prefaced by prescribed online content and tasks that form the basis for discussions and presentations

About this Event

The course will provide students with the skills to interpret relationships between urban spaces and specific cultural practices and patterns of habitation. Sydney provides the primary site for student projects; its multicultural character offers a rich context for interrogating the relationship between architecture and culture.

The course is run as a series of weekly seminars followed by group discussions and presentations and prefaced by prescribed online content and tasks (accessed and completed by students independently prior to the seminar) that form the basis for discussions and presentations

Techniques and approaches used will include:

  • Active student participation
  • Integrating research

This course is within the Faculty of Built Environment
