A New Normal: New suburban street typology Past Event
This is a typical suburban cul-de-sac – that has changed its local transport system. The property owners negotiated to close their no-through road to everyday traffic and install a shared carport at the entrance of the street – a max. 200m from the other-end of the street. This simple act – and small personal behavioural change – frees up enormous real estate for other uses – real estate that can be put-to-use for cultural and environmental production.
This event is part of A New Normal, a project led by Finding Infinity that challenges Melbourne to become an entirely self-sufficient city. This is explored through a series of installations and talks by Melbourne’s leading architects and designers in a former office building at 130 Collins Street.
