Metropolitan regions within Australia (and globally) are complex dynamic social, economic, environmental and physical systems. They are where the majority of Australians live, work, and, play across a vast constellation of urban and suburban environments. As spatial systems, metropolitan Australia is in a constant state of evolution. The arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 has exacerbated, accelerated and disrupted the socio-spatial and economic order of our metropolitan regions with the traditional role and function of CBDs and suburbs being brought into question.

In this seminar the various speakers will provide a series of provocations on a diverse range of issues – cultural diversity, industrial lands, (sub)urban regeneration, densification, (sub)urban sustainability, and, (sub)urban precarity – that characterise contemporary Australian metropolitanism. A Q&A session will follow all presentations.
