This is Public: Future Needs

Episode 2,   Jul 25, 2019, 11:44 PM

As a partner of the Living Cities Forum (with Naomi Milgrom Foundation), Open House Melbourne’s second episode of This is Public focuses on the conference theme: Future Needs.

Hosts Emma Telfer and Sally McPhee spoke with Forum speaker Christopher Hawthorne, Chief Design Officer for the City of Los Angeles, and Rob Adams, Director of City Design at the City of Melbourne about how design responds to future needs in our cities, specifically LA and Melbourne. 

In this fascinating long-form conversation with two city design leaders, we traverse densification to de-growth, innovation to adaptive re-use, transforming ideas into decisive action, and playing the long game in city transformation.
