The Future Cities Collaborative realises that innovative cities can drive economic growth, deliver new jobs, and create thriving communities for residents to live, work, play, invest and visit. Precincts and districts catering for innovation are being created around the world as new examples of communities that have excellent amenity, great access to transport, affordable housing, civic facilities, and provide the types of jobs that will sustain a 21st century economy. In 2016, the Future Cities Collaborative is committed to exposing Australian city-shapers to international best-practice examples of innovation districts in the United States.
In June 2016, the Future Cities Collaborative is supporting the Media Architecture Biennale. The Media Architecture Biennale is the premier international arena where the world’s top experts; architects, designers, artists in both academia, and the industry come together to debate and shape the media architecture of the future. It includes a conference, symposia, workshops, an exhibition and an award show.
In June 2016, the Future Cities Collaborative is pleased to have one of our greatest friends, Ethan Kent from Project for Public Spaces, back in Sydney for a range of events.
