Urban Precinct Studio

Subject coordinator: Professor Sun Sheng Han


This exhibition featured here presents narratives of individual precinct structure plans for four different sites in Metropolitan Melbourne. It is produced through the diligent efforts of a volunteer group, on the basis of student project outcomes in this final year capstone subject.

In preparing their plans, students first collaborated with peers in group work and then focused on the independent development of proposals. Full details of the project outcomes are presented in planning reports. The posters in this booklet represent the main contents about the site, the vision, design proposals, and implementation issues.

Students made enormous efforts to participating in the studio activities and developing their projects, and were successful in consolidating and extending the knowledge and skills through studio learning in semester 2 2020, a very challenging semester due to lockdown restrictions.

The works show what can be accomplished by creative minds, even when the planners had limited mobility in developing their projects.

The University of Melbourne acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the lands in which their campuses are situated; the Wurundjeri and Boon Wurrung peoples, the Yorta Yorta Nation, and the Dja Dja Wurrung people. The University of Melbourne acknowledges and pays respect to their Elders past, present, and emerging.
