Description

Professor Rob Adams
Urban Choreography: Melbourne 1985 - Today


The transformation of central Melbourne since the 1980’s is a global success story-or rather, many success stories. Public space has been incrementally reclaimed from cars and railyards, and street-life volumes have increased dramatically. From turning its back on the water, Melbourne has become a waterfront city. The decline of central city retailing has been turned around and the formerly negligible residential population is booming. The city has grown greener-literally, environmentally and politically. Laneways that were once filled with garbage are now filled with bars, housing and art. Always an urbane place, Melbourne has re-emerged as a city with a depth of character and urban buzz that is palpable, ineffable and unfinished.


Professor Rob Adams is currently the Director City Design and Projects at the City of Melbourne and a member of the World Economic Forum Global Future Council on Cities and Urbanization.



Doors open at 5PM for 5:30PM lecture, to be followed by drinks and nibbles. Please register your attendance.


With thanks to our sponsor, APL.
