Melbourne Emergence Monthly Meetup: Urban Planning and Community Urban Design

  • Jul 11, 2013 · 5:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

In 2013, Victoria as ever faces some vexing concerns about the future of our cities and regions. In the next few months there are several major challenging and contentious policies in play regarding transport infrastructure, housing policy and directing urban development that will have long-term implications for the shape of Melbourne and the wider region. These decisions will impact the life-possibilities of our regions' inhabitants, our patterns of resource usage, and our relationship with the natural world.

One of the goals of the Kororoit Institute and these related Melbourne Emergence meetup is to create a venue for poly-disciplinary thinking and practice to be applied to these kinds of challenging issues. This was initially explored in the Melbourne Knowledge Cities World Summit in 2010, and continued as a major theme in our Living Spaces for Change symposium in 2012.

So in this meetup, we will host talks by two PhD students at the Uni of Melbourne in the Architecture, Building and Planning faculty:

* Patrick Sunter will give a talk on "Philosophical Issues in Urban Planning", to help frame the issues involved in regional-scale planning and varying approaches over the ages;

* Ammon Beyerle (of here studio) will give us an update on facilitating community participation in the debate/process to decide the future of Ballarat's Civic Hall, including two 'Rock the Civic' events to highlight the importance of the site in Ballarat's live music culture.

Tony Smith will chair the meetup and lead a moderated discussion afterwards.

If you aren't sure what we mean by emergence, the Wikipedia page is a good starting point.

    Very interesting presentations brought out real interest from the audience, save for the event host adding a minor distraction.
