SLOW CITIES by Architects for Peace

  • Treasury Theatre Neapoli Wine Bar 30 Russell Place Melbourne, VIC 3000 (map)

As part of Neapoli Wine Bar’s Sunday Salon Sessions, Architects for Peace invites you to a discussion on the value of slow design. How can urban planning, architecture and public art intervention help to slow down the pace of our urban lives and in turn improve city design? How can we respectfully preserve and cultivate Melbourne’s urban culture? What types of local knowledge, practice and design ideologies are valuable in creating inclusive, resilient and healthy communities? Who should be involved in shaping the slow city?

Join us for an afternoon of conversation and inspiration about green design, wellbeing in
the city and, policy making through indigenous knowledge and values.
