Learning from the past, present and future

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesContribution to workshop, seminar, course


The research team seeks to work with local and state government, major private landholders, local firms and residents to unpack the importance and value of suburban industry and employment centres to develop ideas and strategies for their future. At the workshop, the research team will present historical and spatial analysis as a basis for discussion about the strategic value of individual building and site typologies. Site specific issues and opportunities will be identified for sites across the Monash NEIC, with the VPA, local government stakeholders and two senior scholars external to the project team, with extensive knowledge of Melbourne’s southeast, geographer Professor Kevin O’Connor of the University of Melbourne and urban historian Professor Graeme Davison from Monash.
