This unit introduces the concepts of urbanism and urbanity, and the changing form and meaning
of the city. Students examine key factors that have shaped urban form throughout history
including the environment and our attitudes to it, transportation, technology, building practices,
economics, politics, culture and the arts. By tracing the influence of these different factors,
students are encouraged to speculate on the challenges of our swiftly changing world and the
types of design responses required to meet them. URBANISM AND URBANITY.
A specific force will be designated to each student and an investigation of how this force has effected
Perth will be undertaken. Each student will develop an additional image specific to Perth around their
assigned force. Additional relevant forces can be discussed to further illustrate the essay. A final
version (A4) of this image will be submitted accompanied by a 1000 word essay detailing how the
force has shaped Perth. URBANISM AND URBANITY.
Assessment will consider the level of research and analysis undertaken, the creativity and ingenuity in
identifying and defining the forces impact on the cities and the clarity of the graphical representation
of the information. These are not the kind of issues that are addressed in a typical history book.
Identifying the crucial questions will demand relentless curiosity in the examination of the current form
of the city, and answering them will require research beyond the published material available on the
city, and/or considerable speculation. The essay will demonstrate the students capacity for critical
thinking and demonstrate the application of their learned knowledge about the complexities of cites
form and function, the forces that shape them, and the range of influences that have created the cities
we know today. URBANISM AND URBANITY.
QUESTION: How did Culture shape (influence) Perth? (Building form? Skyline? City planning? Etc).
Reference: Chicago Style.
URBANISM AND URBANITY
Perth is the sunniest city in Australia. The city balances urban calm with fresh ordinary
prettiness with ease. Its core is buzzing with new cultural spaces, shopping, restaurants as well as
bars. Additionally, its home of the largest inner city parks in the world – Kings Park. Perth is the
largest as well as capital of Western Australia State. In Australia, it is ranked as the fourth-most
populous city. It was founded in 1829 by James Stirling and gained the city status in 1856. The
building forms in the city have been shaped by different factors. The factors include arts, politics,
economics, building practices, culture among others (Legacy et al. 2018). This study is aimed at
investigating how culture has influenced the city planning in Perth. URBANISM AND URBANITY………..
