Re-thinking high-density residential design: Home, work, wellness

Saturday 25 May, 2pm - 3pm

Designing for change: Home, work, wellness

As our population gets bigger and apartments get smaller - can we purposely design community into our lives?

In this panel discussion led by Dr Isun Kazerani and Dr Kirsten Day, experts from the industries of community planning, community development and the wellness sector, delve into the dynamics of high-density residential development and adjacent community and shared spaces.

Reflecting on current examples of residential developments in Melbourne, the panel, including Dr Marjan Hajjari, Abbie Freestone and Matt Strickland, will address the current growing demands for high-density design, insights into the challenges in existing planning policies, design guidelines, community development and collaborations, and the need for rethinking strategies in design, planning and development for better physical and mental wellbeing of residents.

The session will be followed by Q+A, allowing guests to reflect on their individual experiences in community spaces.
