Suburban Realism: Scale Ability – Symposium Past Event
Suburban Realism – Scale Ability speculates that with a renewed civic and collective vision, Melbourne’s outer edge suburbs might rival its prized inner-city neighbourhoods.
Exhibition: Large scale illustrations and diagnostic graphics map these suburbs’ physical manifestations through ascending scales from supermarket aisles, parking lots, connected roads and transport systems to metropolitan markers of services infrastructure, water systems and landscape.
Symposium: A panel of speakers from a range of backgrounds will speculate on the governing planning frameworks and development systems that form the fringe conditions and how these can be warped or reformulated toward alternative patterns and visions for future suburban needs
