Melbourne Design Week

Designing Tomorrow : Community-Centric Spaces for 2024 & Beyond

Monday 27th May 2024
9.30am - 11.30am
Design Precinct, Richmond VIC


An engaging panel discussion that will explore the evolving landscape of community needs in 2024, and the critical role that designed spaces play in meeting these requirements. 

Our panel of experts will delve into the intricate balance between homes and hospitality spaces, addressing the dynamic shifts in societal demands. Are our homes and hospitality spaces evolving in tandem with the way we live and connect? 

The discussion will also spotlight the importance of human-centric design and ways to incentivise its integration into our projects, ensuring that spaces not only meet functional demands but enhance the overall well-being of the community.

Furthermore, our panel will analyse the transformative power of hospitality spaces in fostering community connections. How do these spaces go beyond mere functionality to create environments that cultivate a sense of belonging and shared experiences?

Lastly, we'll explore collaborative approaches to development, investigating how designers, architects, developers, and communities can work together to build spaces that seamlessly integrate into the existing fabric of a community, enhancing rather than detracting from its essence. 

This event promises to provoke a lively discussion that goes beyond bricks and mortar, delving into the heart of community-centric design.
