Melbourne’s green spaces: From sci-fi fantasy to future reality

Victorian Archives Centre
99 Shiel Street, North Melbourne

Come to the Victorian Archive Centre during Melbourne Design Week and get up close and personal with original plans and proposals from PROV's collection including nineteenth century designs for Melbourne’s Botanic and Fitzroy Gardens to the overly ambitious submissions for the doomed 1978 Melbourne Landmark Design Competition. Alongside the display, four guest speakers will discuss their visions for the future of Melbourne’s green spaces from the perspective of the public, commercial and non-profit sectors.
