Slow Cities: Changing Pace Through Design


SLOW CITIES: CHANGING PACE THROUGH DESIGN


How can urban planning, architecture and public art intervention help to slow down the pace of our urban lives and in turn improve city design? How can we respectfully preserve and cultivate Melbourne’s urban culture? What types of local knowledge, practice and design ideologies are valuable in creating inclusive, resilient and healthy communities? Who should be involved in shaping the slow city?

As part of Neapoli Wine Bar’s Sunday Salon Sessions, Architects for Peace invites you to a panel discussion on the value of slow design by looking at “green” design, wellbeing in the city, and policy-making through indigenous and other sources of knowledge and values.

Dr. Claire Boulange, Postdoctoral Research Fellow - Healthy Liveable Cities Group, RMIT Centre for Urban Research

Dr. Janet McGaw, Senior Lecturer - Architectural Design & Practice, University of Melbourne
