Biography

Carl Grodach is Foundation Professor and Director of Urban Planning & Design and Director of the Monash Urban Lab at Monash University. Prof Grodach’s research areas include community and economic development, cultural planning and policy, strategic planning, and precinct-level urban revitalisation. His work is by nature interdisciplinary, focusing on issues significant across urban planning and policy, geography, sociology, and design fields.

He has published extensively in leading urban studies and planning journals including Cities, International Journal of Urban and Regional Research,Journal of the American Planning AssociationJournal of Planning Education and ResearchJournal of Urban Affairs, and Urban Studies. He is author of the book Urban Revitalization: Remaking Cities in a Changing World (Routledge, 2015) and editor of The Politics of Urban Cultural Policy: Global Perspectives (Routledge, 2013). His work has been funded by the Australian Research Council, City of Melbourne, CRC for Water Sensitive Cities, US National Endowment for the Arts, New York Community Trust, and the Government of Canada.

Currently, he leads an interdisciplinary team of researchers on the Australian Research Council Discover Project Urban cultural policy and the changing dynamics of cultural production. The project aims to identify new directions for urban cultural policy through international comparative research around the emerging nexus between the cultural industries and manufacturing. Other projects include the Living Locally Research Project, which focuses on delivering community infrastructure to support the development of 20-minute neighbourhoods in outer suburban growth areas and Guiding Integrated Urban and Water Planning which aims to identify and resolve current constraints to the delivery of water sensitive urban planning. He is also part of an ARC-funded team of researchers from five Australian universities working to establish iHUB, a nationally networked digital infrastructure platform for built environment research, synthesis, and engagement.

Prof Grodach has taught a range of undergraduate and graduate level studio and seminar classes in community development, cultural planning, economic development, strategic planning, urban design, urban theory, and urban revitalization. He has also worked closely with his students to produce a diverse set of award-winning plans and studies for community organisations and government in Australia and the US.
