High Density Happiness: Urban placemaking
Wed 20 Jan 2016, 6.00pm
Join us for the third and final in our series of Wednesday-night MTalks discussions ruminating on ‘High-density happiness’. Presented by Neometro’s online urban-culture publication Open Journal, this evening’s panel—based around the concept of urban placemaking—will examine what makes a city appealing and attractive as a place to live. Join Laura Phillips, editor of Open Journal, and Jeff Provan, Neometro’s founder and design director, as they talk to Simon Knott (of BKK Architects) 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.
