The City of Melbourne is developing a series of strategies to address the serious impacts of climate change and to provide tactics for adaptation and the fashioning of a resilient urban environment. In particular, the City has advanced three key actions or design initiatives that focus on: Vegetation (Melbourne Urban Forest Strategy), Greening Buildings (Green Roofs Program and Canopy Forum), and Water Security: (Melbourne as Catchment, MCC WSUD Guidelines, and amendment C142). Immersing ourselves in the living city and adopting a landscape architectural lens this Design Studio Workshop Intensive engages directly with these plans to investigate the agency of design strategies and tactics. Through interrogating policies, procedures, and local and global precedents and generating design propositions, the workshop aims to develop landscape driven methods for engaging with vulnerable cities impacted by global warming.
