Learning Hub

  • The trial park is the first stage in delivering a permanent future park envisioned under the Penrith City Centre Public Domain Masterplan. This is inspired by the approach of Tactical Urbanism, as coined by Mike Lydon: “short term action, long term change”.
  • Patricia Kirk discusses recent trends in home occupancy and the developer's response to Gen Y's changing needs and expectations. Kirk uses a recent survey undertaken by the Urban Land Institute and an earlier study by RCLCO, to suggest that Gen Y's are moving housing demand from a predominantly suburban to a more mutlifamily urban context.

World's Best Places

With urban populations growing steadily, public spaces, particularly those that are great for people, are rising in emotional, physical and economic value. We want to capture what makes these people places so great so that everyone can learn from them. Tell us what makes these places work while others flounder... What is the big, or small attraction? Why do they feel comfortable? Or exciting? Or relaxed? What are the key learnings that could be applied to new places or those being improved or even completely redesigned?

This database is open to everyone to contribute to and share so please participate by adding your favourite place, making a comment on one of the places already here or even just giving a place the thumbs up.
