Infrastructure and the City 
In association with the Reid Lecture, the UNSW Master of Urban Development & Design Program will present the Studio work of 2016-2017, its 22nd year.  
Infrastructure and the City – Sydney | Berlin | New York. 
The Studio projects focus on transport infrastructure, green infrastructure and blue infrastructure – exploring how these vast elements shape and dissect urban form and the life of the city.  Four Studios will be presented:
Sydney – Civilising WestConnex
Berlin – River as Urban Resource  (hosted by Technical University, Berlin)
New York – Hudson Yards & Midtown West, Manhattan  
(hosted by Kohn Pedersen Fox)
Studies in Urban Form – Nine Water Cities
The MUDD Program seeks the support of the design and development community in Sydney to join our initial sponsors Scott Carver and the Goethe Institut, Sydney in highlighting this dynamic investigation of the 21st century city. You can 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 the MUDD22 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. We look forward to working with you in the presentation of this exciting event.
