149: How can a city architect be the catalyst for urban transformation? (guest: Rob Adams – City Architect of Melbourne)

Welcome to the 149. episode of Urbcast, in which we talk about: How can a city architect be the catalyst for urban transformation?🧐

Why should we talk about it?

City architects can transform the image and functionality of a city. Melbourne’s transformation into a more liveable and functional city is a testament to the collaborative efforts of the city architect, their team, and the community they engage with.

Although the UIA is over now, we can still learn from some of the inspiring people who visited Copenhagen and the Henning Larsen office last week. One of them is Rob Adams, the city architect of Melbourne, who played a pivotal role in the city's transformation from a depopulating city to a globally recognized example of urban design resulting in a highly livable city. Rob shares the ingredients of this successful transformation and the idea of urban choreography.

Some topics of today:

  • The successful transformation of Melbourne
  • Measuring urban data: The key to informed decision-making in cities
  • City architect’s role: Shaping urban environments and driving change
  • Architects: Public vs. private sector dynamics
