In our twentieth anniversary year the MUDD Program has undertaken urban projects in Cape Town, Penang, Valparíaso and Sydney. These cities provided settings for the Program’s approach to twenty-first century urbanism, which seeks the synthesis of three bodies of knowledge about the city: first, spatial political economy, the manifestation in urban form of global patterns of capital formation, investment and disinvestment; second, urban design principles and paradigms, normative models of ‘good city form’ grounded in aesthetic, social and environmental concerns; third, ‘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.
