Leone Lorrimer and Angus Rose recently presented dwp’s vision for a hyper mixed use hypothetical development in an inner suburb of Newcastle to 250 members of the Property Council of Australia. In their keynote address, they gave insight into the application of ‘activity based work’ methodologies on urban design and how new models of asset ownership, and exploration of synergistic relationships, can drive better economic and amenity outcomes.
In a changing world with an ever increasing reliance on technology, the so named ‘activity based city’ addressed an ideal framework for how people connect with each other effectively. We focus on the creation of a vibrant community that is an intellectual, cultural and economic powerhouse, is mentally and physically healthy, and utilises space and assets all the time. The Newcastle Showground was tested as an example of how cities might develop a sustainable approach and demonstrate clear brand objectives in terms of lifestyle and employment opportunities.
