The Long Game of Urban Design

The making
and breaking of cities

David Cooke uses his urban design knowledge and global experience to address the urban renewal challenges that face Australian cities.

David is an internationally qualified Urban Designer, registered Architect, accredited Planner.

He is the Director of City Collective, a design studio that works across Australia and the world. He was the first South Australian to be awarded a prestigious scholarship at the University of California, Berkeley, in their intensive Masters of Urban Design program.

David shares his deep insights into the impact that major sporting events can have on cities – winning an Olympic and Commonwealth Games bid can make or break a city, depending on the organisers’ approach to urban planning.

Many thanks to Rooster Radio for the opportunity to discuss.
