The second speaker series invites key planners to discuss strategies for growing our city in a sustainable fashion. Prominent architects will then present a variety of built housing typologies, from the humble suburban block conversion to towering city apartments, illustrating clever opportunities to maintain Melbourne’s character whilst increasing our density.
Each speaker will conclude with their favourite increased housing density project by another architect, from any period and any country, providing an insight into the works our design professionals regard most highly.
