A three hour workshop targeting Councillors. A shared understanding and language of urban design and placemaking; an appreciation of what it means individually and to Council;
an understanding of the broad benefits to the community and Council; an understanding of how Council can deliver Places for People (and access to more information and resources); and
key trends in urban design and placemaking.

  • The new library with a cafe on the corner and learning facilities upstairs is a great example of the public sector delivering good urban design with public buildings and facilitating a new urban centre!
  • Note how the buildings in Salamanca Place enclose the space? The markets (soft infrastructure) create wonderful place based experiences - "the icing on the cake".
  • Photo of my favourite oz place what's yours?
    Great view, gritty place (functioning rear lane with rubbish bins and cobblestones). Doesn't meet classic urban design criteria - no active edges, although the graffiti helps as does Movida restaurant.
  • Every city seems to need markets (and laneways)!
  • The Nolli plan (in this instance Rome) is a useful urban design tool. It shows buildings in black and the spaces in between in white. Generally the more complex the pattern the more interesting the place. Think of the pattern of your nearest big box shopping centre - box in black surrounded by hectares of white parking!
    What would the Nolli plan be of your favourite place?
  • A simpler definition of urban design (thanks to participant feedback!).
    Places like Federation Square are designed with one or more functions in mind.

  • Another short planning definition! It is comprehensive though – covers a lot of the points.

    Oatlands a redevelopment of an old state school in Sydney by Landcom which used rear lanes to get garages at the back of houses (and apartments) to improve the street. Designed by one of our interviewees - Clive Alcock.

  • It's all about the quality of the public space - the area between the buildings (usually in public ownership) which is quickly forgotten.
    Lindy + Allan's house in my street contributes to the street by defining the transition from public to private space. It features an obvious front gate and low fence, front door leading to the veranda (a place for strangers out of the rain), front room is semi public (sitting room not a bedroom). Garage to the side.

  • Suburban fringe residential development by Mirvac (through Landcom) which is closer to the street, two stories and not dominated by garages.
    Shame about the bollards?
  • It does this by placing the garages at the rear of the house. A little parsley on the pig though as the rest of the estate utilises standard garages at the front which impact on the street. (WA is leading the charge in good suburban (and inner city) development).
  • An easy book to read (do yourself a favour and borrow it from the library!) which confirms that cities need public places with different functions. Not just deserted city spaces!
  • It's all about quality public space - which can affect the way people feel. A drawing of an apartment building which not only responds to the climate... but also the street!

  • Urban design is an activity and an end result.
    The linear park in KGUV looked good on plan, but may be missing a clear function. Could be a really good playground or skate park, or performance space?
  • According to Chris Melsom (HASSELL Perth) a key characteristic of urban designers is emotional intelligence. Wikipedia says that there are 2 characteristics of EI:
    Self-awareness – the ability to read one's emotions and recognize their impact while using gut feelings to guide decisions.
    Self-management – involves controlling one's emotions and impulses and adapting to changing circumstances.
    Social awareness – the ability to sense, understand, and react to others' emotions while comprehending social networks.
    Relationship management – the ability to inspire, influence, and develop others while managing conflict.
    Image is a scale model of Shanghai in the Town Planning museum in a prominent location the cities central square.
  • Urban design relies on built form at different scales. The plan of Wellard on the southern Perth railway line should deliver good urban design based on its structure and scale.
  • Great places benefit from a ‘sense of place’...
  • which is broader than built form. Places tend to be our favourite parts of the city - whereas spaces tend to be dead or unsafe?
    A lookout along Latrobe Tce in Paddington, Brisbane – one of my favourite places (has anyone seen the TV remote?).
  • Often social fabric (soft infrastructure) is critical to placemaking - the events, festivals etc
    The arrow marks the couch!
  • The Morrison Institute have built on the work of Richard Florida and others to identify the qualities of cites (and their regions) which attract knowledge based workers (like us).
    Percentage of gay and lesbian people in a city is an indicator of the populations tolerance.
    Cities are know competing with each other to deliver these outcomes.
  • So because urban design is multidisciplinary planners can not only contribute they can also lead the process. Particularly when we think creatively and work in 3 dimensions.
    Melbourne city square – controversially created in the 1960s with the demolition of heritage buildings and opened in 1980 by QEII. It was redeveloped from1997 to 2000 with part of the site sold for a hotel.
  • "Andrew's guide to design leadership in urban design projects."
    Most projects as need a facilitator to support the design lead. Planners tend to make good project facilitators.
    Fringe residential development by Australand which is creating a centre through two storey town houses overlooking a new park. Garages at the rear help.
    This is a good way of making a centre in the suburbs without retail uses. It need not rely on high quality landscaping either.
  • Pathways @ Northlakes (yellow circle) - opposite the new Westfield shopping centre (blue) which engages with the street.
    The old Pine Rivers Shire Council worked hard to deliver urban outcomes in this new Centre.
  • When I was at HASSELL I led a team in a 2 day design workshop with public stakeholders to plan a new library, senior school and recreation centre with a main street outcome. We also included a laneway, central park and on street carparking.
  • The new library with a cafe on the corner and learning facilities upstairs is a great example of the public sector delivering good urban design with public buildings and facilitating a new urban centre!
  • Keep your eye out for Placefocus.com
  • Have a look at the ‘Built to Last” movie on the internet site and tell me what you think? There are a couple of other movies on this site you might like to view as well.

    What do you understand about New Urbanism?

  • Built from local granite in 1858 the Bank of Australasia was committed to the vision for Yackandandah.  A nice example of single storey mixed use - the bank at the front with the managers residence to the side.  A small front garden transitions between public and private space.  
    This contributes to one of the best and intact main streets in Australia!
  • Vision California is a more recent example of Calthorpe’s approach to regional planning. http://www.calthorpe.com/files/Vision%20California%20Brochure%20v2.pdf
    The alternative futures produced in Vision California will not just be a collection of goals, policies, maps, or pictures – they will be quantitatively assessed to show how varying land use and infrastructure investments can meet state goals for reducing greenhouse gas emissions as well as related objectives for open space and farmland preservation, community health, mobility, housing affordability, energy and water use, and more. It is this unique combination of alternatives and the quantification of their impacts that can lead to more informed and strategic decisions about the future of our state. By clearly defining the critical consequences of various growth options, it will enable informed policy decisions to be made about how to shape the California's growth.

  • This is a new suburb in a ‘new town’ on the edge of Brisbane. Mirvac developed this shopping centre (near a new train station) with two malls running parallel to a high street.
    This is leading edge for shopping centres in Queensland.
    I am not sure why they closed the street on a Saturday – no obvious sign of streetworks. I don’t think they were filming a movie? Perhaps to enable the pedestrians to cross between the malls? Although, it seemed to make the space feel a little too quiet?
    I wonder if this is consistent with the conditions of approval?
  • A good way to think about design – the physical definition of streets!
    We don’t build fire stations like this anymore...

    9. 9. Hibberson St, Gungahlin, Canberra, ACT, AUS 1.1 PIA URBAN DESIGN CHAPTER “Urban design aims at the creation of useful, attractive, safe, environmentally sustainable, economically successful and socially equitable places. Good urban design pursues local identity and sense of place, cultural responsiveness and purposeful environmental innovation. It achieves a high level of quality, comfort, safety, equity, beauty and cohesion in the overall, physical outcome of all the development, planning, engineering, architectural and landscape design decisions that contribute to urban change.”
