In a time when the largest proportion of the population lives in urban agglomerations urban spatial conditions are becoming increasingly important. We ask you to develop ideas, even utopian scenarios, and expand the field of interior design to become an urban interior designer.
First we explore our private and personal rights in the city as well as being interested in the relationship other groups have with public space. Second we develop proposals for an almost hidden laneway in and outside of Melbourne Central. How people claim this part of the city? How can this laneway become a place for a wide range of urban activities, from underground street art to skateboarding, from urban screenings to outdoor exhibitions?
You will have the opportunity to exhibit elements of the studio project in the DIY Urbanism exhibition and you are invited to the Right to the City conference, both in Sydney in April.
Create exciting and challenging new urban spaces!
