PROTOTYPES

The Melbourne Section vision is tested through the implementation of large-scale projects in the seven key suburbs. Exemplary mixed-use typologies along the public transport line amplify the strategy in these intervention areas.

The programs of the individual projects address the specific future strategy for each of the suburbs and relate to the overall vision of The Melbourne Section. All of the projects are complemented by various types of dense housing and take advantage of collectively used spaces and programs.

Although derived from local types and grains, the projects introduce a new scale, density and spatial relationship to the existing grid within the suburbs. These proposals illustrate developed scenarios and leverage the discovered potentials for a resilient growth. The projects are thought of as prototypes for the future.
