High Density Happiness: Urban Placemaking

Jan 6, 2016
  • Article by Online Editor

MPavilion continues its program of architecture and design discussions into 2016 with the third and final forum in its series of Wednesday-night MTalks, entitled ‘High-density happiness’.

Based on the concept of urban placemaking, the event will examine what makes a city appealing and liveable.

Join Neometro’s founder and design director Jeff Provan as he talks to Simon Knott (of BKK Architects), Barrie Barton (of Right Angle Studio) and Rachel Elliot-Jones (of Assemble) about how Melbourne can maintain its position as the World’s Most Liveable City, full of visible life, with navigable and pedestrian-friendly neighbourhoods.

Tune in—and jot down your questions for the Q&A—as the panellists consider how inner Melbourne can provide an affordable and sustainable alternative to suburban sprawl.

When: Wed 20 Jan 2016, 6.00pm

Where: MPavilion
