A team from our practice recently participated in the Transform Perth 2.0 Design Charrette. A joint initiative by The Property Council, CODA and The Greens, the one day charrette invited eight of Perth’s leading architectural practices to work intensively alongside UWA Masters students on designs for sites along Perth’s transport corridors.
The charrette is part of the design testing phase for the 2013 research document “Transforming Perth”. The document, a partnership between The Property Council, The Greens and AUDRC, examines the potential for developments along transport corridors to house our growing population whilst maintaining a liveable city.
During the workshop, the teams explored designs for mixed-use developments which have higher levels of levels of density whilst providing good amenity and active, human-scaled streetscapes. The aim is to create places where people want to live and visit.
Thanks to CODA for organising the day, in support of our shared belief that architects can play a pivotal role in how our cities develop. By engaging in these conversations and using our skills in problem solving and communication, architects can help imagine a sustainable future for our city and its neighbourhoods.
