Visiting landscape and urbanism blog this morning I noticed this competition coming up in Melbourne in July.Landscape Urbanism 72 Hour Urban Action Melbourne
100 international/national architects, designers, craftspeople and artists will race the clock to design and construct exciting new public space projects in just 72 hours in a real-time design challenge aimed at transforming Melbourne’s Docklands.
I'm curious about this event... this blog deals with : Dialogue and siftings from Portland, Oregon focusing on landscape architecture & urbanism, ecological urbanism , vegetated architecture, urban agriculture, cities, urban history & theory, mapping & other relatedconcepts of urbanism.
The drive is on to reinvent our relationship with urban spaces... one sees some brilliant concepts and others that may leave one frowning at the very least. One thing is for sure... there's no time to waste on this account... our urban landscapes have a drastic impact on habitat ... and with increasing populations, urban sprawl and the rate of habitat loss we've no alternative than to deal with these questions smartly. This event will no doubt promote dialogue around this profoundly essential issue.
below is the a, b and c's of the extensive blog/website listings one can visit from this blog which hails from Portland, US. And this is just the Landscape list... Go see more here.
