Over and over again - Circularity, reharvesting and re-education.

Faced with finite reserves of land and resources, diminishing biodiversity and globally declining birth rates, it has never been more important to do less! Formerly predicated on the use of raw materials and the production of new buildings, city-making must now adapt to regimes of recycling, repurposing and re-use.

The Living Cities Forum is an annual assembly exploring the role of design, planning and architecture in shaping our society.

It returns to Melbourne with an impressive array of international and local architecture and urban design leaders.

The Forum is for a multi-disciplinary audience of architects, planners, policy makers and community advocates. Alongside the Forum we create a series of satellite events that embed the discussion in the local industry or examine specific projects.

In 2021, Living Cities Forum invites globally celebrated thinkers, architects and urbanism experts—including author Bruce Pascoe, philosopher Timothy Morton, architect Anupama Kundoo, designer Maarten Gielen, architect Sarah Lynn Rees and artist Tega Brain—to discuss The Long View, a theme that asks how different perspectives on time can affect the growth of our cities.

Joining the Forum from across the world, these guests will deliver a series of keynote addresses that speak to modern expectations of instantaneity and immediacy, the pandemic-induced convergence of home life, daily work and free time, ownership and structural disparities, circularity and re-education, harnessing a commitment to ‘the moment’, and many more temporal considerations that determine the form and function of the spaces in which we meet, work and live.

The Living Cities Forum is supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria, Development Victoria and RACV.

Living Cities Forum is the sister event to MPavilion, and is presented by the Naomi Milgrom Foundation.
