This studio asks students to re-imagine the urban strategies informing the development of our cities. With a focus on housing affordability and diversity in housing arrangements, the studio project will develop an urban proposition that serves as a direct, detailed and substantive critique of the policy frameworks currently guiding housing delivery. To inform and ground the studio projects, the critique will be based on three fields of inquiry – economic (understanding the financial settings required for alternative outcomes), regulatory (acknowledging the legislative framework underpinning the development of the city) and programmatic (exploring the physical arrangements of localities and buildings and their impact on the way we live). The studio encourages students to become involved in the city and provide them with the agency to affect change.
