Architecture in the City: Creating a City with Meaning

Listen to Architecture in the City: Creating a City with Meaning

A panel of leading Melbourne architects including Kerstin Thompson, Shelley Penn, Rodney Eggleston and Jon Clements, give their expert local perspectives on the built environment in our city.

They’ll explore whether our national architectural (or cultural) identity has been sacrificed to modernity. How do we house and cater to a population forecast to dramatically boom, while retaining our built heritage? How has Melbourne’s architecture come to define our city? And what role do architects have to play?

Hosted by Michael Heyward.

Architecture in the City

How does architecture influence our cities – and the way we live? What do we need to consider when we’re designing major buildings? In partnership with the Naomi Milgrom Foundation and the Australian Institute of Architects, we’re hosting two events – as a prelude to the new MPavilion project – that consider these questions from an international and local perspective.
