There is little doubt that the world is becoming more urbanised, with many global cities tackling population growth and densification. Melbourne is a leading example of this, with our population growth expected to exceed the prediction of eight million people by 2050. Through this population growth, the rise of mixed-use developments are playing a large part in defining the urban fabric of the city. The quality of the public realm, amenities and communal spaces provided by these high-density developments is becoming increasingly paramount to their success.
MPavilion hosts a panel led by NH Architecture to explore the role and future of public facilities in urban developments. What learnings can be taken from the design of amenity and communal spaces to promote and encourage wellbeing as the city densifies?
