MUDD24 Event

A warm response to a hot topic.

UTZON Lecture: Leighton Hall was standing room only on Wednesday evening, March 06, 2019 for the 12th Annual Paul Reid Lecture. In celebration of his appointment to the eminent role of UNSW Scientia Professor, internationally acclaimed academic Professor Mattheos Santamouris presented a provocative and timely analysis of advances in science and design for the mitigation of urban heat, a vital challenge for 21st century city-making in the face of rapid urbanisation worldwide. Scientia Professor Santamouris highlighted his recent research into urban warming in Western Sydney, the urban heat impact of the Western Sydney Airport as well urban heat mitigation studies of Darwin, Adelaide and other cities across the globe. As well as outlining the grim reality that results from expected temperature gains across Western Sydney, Scientia Professor Santamouris introduced his audience to the many technological and materials advances and planning and design changes that are emerging in response to our rapidly warming urban environments. His warmly received lecture provided not just a wake-up call to us all, but also an understanding that urban designers have both a responsibility and the tools to address these challenges.

The Utzon Lecture was immediately followed by the opening of the MUDD24 exhibition where students from the Master of Urban Design and Development Program presented their work to an appreciative audience of guests from Sydney’s leading design firms, government agencies, sponsors, academics, students, family and friends. Representing the theme of “Urban Networks/Urban Gateways”, the exhibition showcased work undertaken by MUDD24 students in Canterbury, Boston, Fukuoka and beyond. Also exhibited were the only student works from an Australian university to be included in the International Geodesign Collaboration in California this year.

Thank you to all our enthusiastic sponsors, participants and supporters for making the evening such a memorable success.

Built Environment Gallery, Red Centre West Wing

Scientia, UNSW Kensington Campus

In our twenty-fourth year, the MUDD Program explored critical urban development and design issues in Sydney, Boston and Fukuoka on the theme of urban networks and urban gateways – the urban climate impact of ‘gateway city’ growth around Western Sydney Airport; the challenge of transit oriented densification around stations of Sydney’s Southwest Metro; the network city potential of Harvard University’s 110 ha brownfields site across the Charles River from Cambridge, linking Harvard, MIT and Boston University; reconstruction of the Hakata waterfront in Fukuoka to cope with booming trade, tourism, conventions and exhibitions of this gateway city to Japan from China, South Korea and the world. 

Our projects reflect the distinctive approach of the UNSW MUDD Program to contemporary urbanism, integrating spatial political economy, the manifestation in urban form of global patterns of capital formation, investment and disinvestment; urban design principles and paradigms, normative models of ‘good city form’ grounded in aesthetic, social and environmental concerns; and urban design as public policy, the intersection of public policy, design principles, the deal-making of the property sector and defence of the public realm. 

Please join our Initial Sponsors Scott Carver to further the Program’s unique experience for students from Australia and overseas, and contribute to the design culture of Sydney as a sponsor of the special night of the Paul Reid Lecture and MUDD24 Exhibition Opening. 

Sponsorship packages and donorship opportunities are available at a variety of levels, offering you engagement with the UNSW approach to the integration of urban development and urban design. You can access the Sponsorship and Donor Forms at the links below. We look forward to working with you in the presentation of this exciting event.
