Abstract

The topic for this research is the urban design of a particular case of human settlement: the urban beach precincts found on the coast of the Gold Coast, Australia. Urban design attributes, characteristics and values are the focus of an examination of three selected examples of different beach precincts. Urban design theories and practices have generally arisen from the study of places in existing towns and cities and very few studies have explicitly explored the conflicted and contested urban design along beachfronts. This study attempts to explore the design of the public spaces that provide the gateway to recreational, restorational and other benefits of access to the natural environment of the beach in an urban context, by examining the relationships between the use of the public spaces of beach precincts by residents, visitors and tourists, and the urban design attributes and characteristics and the values of beach precincts.
