Last week, the Urban Development and Design 'Seidler & the City' Design Jury was held in the Gallery.

The project requirements included site selection and site analysis, analytical diagrams based on urban morphology and transport systems, structure plans, urban design framework, precinct plans, design guidelines and three dimensional representation of urban space. Students researched key Seidler urban projects, together with their precedents and urban settings before presenting their designs to a jury of professionals.

The studio was directed by James Weirick and the jury was made up of Dean Professor Alec Tzannes, Professor Jon Lang and Scott Hawken from UNSW Built Environment, and industry professionals including Greg Holman, Principal, Harry Seidler Associates; Vladimir Belogolovsky, Curator of the forthcoming Seidler Exhibition at the Museum of Sydney and Brendan Randles, architect & urban designer from ​Architectus.
