Urban Design and Planning

Gurtner, Harwood, King, Law, Sims, Tavares

Our researchers are committed to understanding complex land use and development issues in settlements across the tropics, in particular in Australasia, Southeast Asia, and the Pacific.  Our focus is on environmentally responsive and inclusive urban design, indigenous and remote settlement planning and disaster management strategies.  We have close connections to government, industry and community stakeholders through our Tropical Urbanism and Design Lab and the Centre for Disaster Studies.
