    AAA Special Talk: The Imperative of Place

    Regular Price:

    AU$119.90
    Duration: 01:12:02
    For Bennett’s Associates, the evolution of their approach to urbanism has been characterised by two themes: a preoccupation with human scale in the city and a drive to achieve directiveness of place. 
    They are determined to resist the cult of ‘object’ buildings that relegate the space occupied by the city’s inhabitants as being of secondary importance. 
    They also strive for developments, places and cities that are identifiably connected to context, be it cultural, historical or environmental and reject the ever more depressing tide of globalised architecture that has swept the planet in the three decades they have been practicing.
    This talk by Julian Lipscombe is a part of their story.
    TARGET LEARNING OUTCOMES
    At the completion of this course you will:
    • Understand the work scope of Bennett's Associates in the UK and Europe

    AAA Short Black Talk: The Melbourne SHRINE OF REMEMBRANCE

    Regular Price:

    AU$59.95
    Duration: 00:49:04
    The Shrine of Remembrance is Melbourne’s most visible and poignant war memorial.

    The Vancouver Experience

    Regular Price:

    AU$59.95
    Duration: 01:00:34
    Ann McAfee and Larry Beasley co-present a discussion of the successful planning of Vancouver, Canada. The rapidly growing city has successfully developed with the involvement of citizens in both planning and delivery, and received the label of being the most liveable city in the world. The planning process has been delivered around a number of strategies, including: to balance jobs and housing accessibility through appropriate land use and transport;  to expand and protect a diverse and ideas based economy; to support social inclusion; allowing growth to pay for new services; create both a sustainable core and suburbs.
    Increasing residential density downtown by reclaiming industrial “brownfields” for mixed income communities has created a vibrant city centre. In suburban areas, more sustainable densities are being created around neighbourhood centers where mixed housing choices, retail and community prioritized services maintain liveable communities. Resident input into local development, although sometimes cumbersome, results in a city shaped by public and not private interests. The success of Vancouver’s planning process will continue to promote one of the most livable and sustainable cities in the world.
    TARGET LEARNING OUTCOMES  
    • An understanding of the history and practice of urban design and issues of city planning.
    • An understanding of issues of ecological sustainability and design for reduction of energy use and environmental impact.
    • An ability to identify elements of city planning, including facilities, mobility, recreation, conservation, land use and encouraging economic prosperity.
