GCRP Awarded Urban Design Research Project from Shanghai Planning Authority

Thu 30 July 2015

The Globalisation and Cities Research Program (GCRP) have won a highly contended urban design research project awarded by the Shanghai Planning Authority.

The project entitled “The Making of Global Shanghai”, will investigate the design and development of Shanghai as a global city. 

Convenor of the GCRP Associate Professor Richard Hu is thrilled with the new project.

"The Shanghai project, together with a few other overseas initiatives underway, marks a firm step of the internationalisation of UC’s urban research," he said.

For years, the GCRP have undertaken a series of research projects to inform planning and design for competitive and sustainable Australian cities, with funding from ARC, Commonwealth departments, state and local governments, and the business sector. 

These projects, together with resultant international publications, have made significant contribution to a mass of urban scholarship with national leadership and international reputation.
