Phase Change 2.0 Design Research Studio

Phase Change 2.0 explores the future of Victoria Harbour, as well as the City of Melbourne more broadly, in relation to the changing nature of the environment and our changing understanding of it. Engaging directly with global warming and its impacts at a local and regional scale, and working across a range of design disciplines and related practices, Phase Change 2.0 seeks to envision scenarios for sustainable and resilient futures.

Phase Change 2.0 takes the form of a working design laboratory installed in the Knowledge Market space at Victoria Harbour, Docklands. Evolving throughout the course of the semester, the Phase Change 2.0 studio provides a place for discussion, debate, speculation and lively interaction between the public, students and a range of academics, practitioners, professionals and local stakeholders. In doing so Phase Change 2.0 aims to foster a dynamic, participatory knowledge exchange and generate a range of provocations regarding the design of our cities.
