Are you interested in designing cities that foster a sustainable future? Currently over 50% of the global population live in cities and this is predicted to be over 70% by 2050. We need to ensure that our cities are places that are sustainable, resilient, and liveable. We will explore what these terms mean and why they are essential for our future. What design elements are important in the cities of the future? How can buildings be designed to be energy and water efficient and a pleasure to work in? What is the significance of parkland in cities? What design features are needed in our parks and gardens? How can waste be managed in a sustainable way? These themes will be investigated through a mixture of highly interactive and innovative workshops, seminars, and fieldtrips to parks and gardens, energy efficient buildings, waste management centres, and much more. This stream will leave you with a taste of the diverse choices offered in the Bachelor of Design degree at the University of Melbourne.
