A group of students from the Master of Architecture and Landscape Architecture of the University of Adelaide have participated to an outreach urban design studio in Port Augusta, between the 19th and 24fh of September 2015.
The studio was aimed at developing designed proposals and a public space regeneration strategy for the CBD areas of Port Augusta.
The data collections and the project proposals were based on three pillars of the sustainability and on nine main themes:
Economic: Energy and infrastructures - Land Use - Urban decay and underutilized spaces.
Environmental: Green infrastructures - Water and soil pollution - Water harvesting.
Socio-cultural: Flows and fluctuations in uses - Heritage buildings - Community engagement.
The students presented the surveys and the action plans during the meetings with local stakeholders, the Community Planner Mr. Tung Pham and the representatives of the residents, including a group of elders from the Aboriginal community.
The program was funded by the Indigenous Course Enrichment Project of the Faculty of Professions, supported by the Wirltu Yarlu office, University of Adelaide, and the Port Augusta Council.
