This course is an introduction to the interdisciplinary nature of city making that focuses on a cutting-edge, high-density urban infill project, Central Park, Sydney as its case study. The case study is used to explore the interdependencies of the professions at play; urban design, architecture, construction management, city planning, landscape architecture, interior architecture and industrial design. The entire development process for the urban infill project is investigated, from the earliest planning and site purchases through to completion, and from the broad contextual scale through to the design intricacies. This includes design innovations in green technologies, structure, construction, environmental and building service, framing within the wider context of infrastructure, governance and the political economy. A key question investigated in this course is: how do we engage local democracy to make urban density both sustainable and poetic in current global cities?
