RANKED THE WORLD’S MOST LIVEABLE CITY BY THE ECONOMIST FOR SEVEN YEARS RUNNING, MELBOURNE HAS EXPERIENCED UNPRECEDENTED GROWTH AS IT BECOMES HOME TO AN INCREASINGLY DIVERSE DEMOGRAPHIC.
As the population grows, so too does the need for considered development that is designed for current and future generations. Beyond Melbourne, cities are beginning to display positive efforts of future-proofing by utilising big data and employing smart interventions. Architects, designers and engineers play an ever-important role in being able to shape communities and optimise lifestyles. Contextualised, these solutions tend to be climatically and culturally specific, adding layers onto the richness of a city’s past.
However, the questions remain; How do we future proof Melbourne? How do we ensure the viability of life through exponential growth? How do we apply global inspiration while accounting for the local?
