This course injects an explicitly historical dimension into planning studies. It has four main interrelated foci: the historical development of urban systems and places, the development of modern planning theory and practice, methods of historical research, and assessment of heritage values in the built environment. The emphases are on Sydney and the 20th century Australian experience in international perspective. Topics include city typologies, historical planning paradigms, models of ideal metropolitan form, Sydney's planning history, planned capitals, and heritage procedures under the NSW planning system. Teaching involves lectures, videos, and fieldtrips, engaging students through discussion and workshops. Assessment is primarily via written research reports and class participation.
