Patrick Troy and new book

This chapter describes how the physical arrangement of the urban form plays an important role in fostering social and economic change in Australian cities, a process known as physical determinism.

Emeritus Professor Patrick Troy's new chapter "Physical Determinism and Australian Cities" has been published in the 2017 The Routledge Handbook of Australian Urban and Regional Planning, edited by Neil Sipe and Karen Vella.  The book examines, the status of planning in twenty-first-century Australia?  What are the key challenges that confront planning?  What does planning scholarship reveal about the state of planning practice in meeting the needs of urban and regional Australians?

The Routledge Handbook of Australian Urban and Regional Planning includes 27 chapters that answer these and many other questions that confront planners working in urban and regional areas in twenty-first-century Australia. It provides a single source for cutting edge thinking and research across a broad range of the most important topics in urban and regional planning.

It is a valuable resource for advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students in urban planning, built environment, urban studies and public policy as well as academics and practitioners across Australia and internationally.

Divided into six parts, this handbook explores:

  • contexts of urban and regional planning in Australia
  • critical debates in Australian planning
  • planning policy
  • climate change, disaster risk and environmental management
  • engaging and taking planning action
  • planning education and research
  • contexts of urban and regional planning in Australia
