Sustainability and urban transformation to improve people’s lives, is the focus of this week’s Future Cities National Forum, held at the University of Melbourne.

The University of Melbourne is launching an exhibition of international work on sustainable urban design, in a program known as Eco-Acupuncture, helping communities ‘future-proof’ their cities for the impact of climate change.

The Faculty of Architecture, Building and Planning has received a gift of $1 million from Creative Futures, supported by Professor Daryl Le Grew and alumnus Dr Robert Treseder.

The gift will provide the annual Robert Garland Tresder Fellowship, set to bring internationally acclaimed design and innovation trailblazers to work in residence at the University.

Researchers from the University of Melbourne have created a system to model and predict house values and rental rates at the individual property level.  The comparison of these two values offers insight into rental yields in the market; an import metric that can be used by buyers, sellers, investors and renters to help make informed choices.

Level crossing removals should be viewed as part of a total picture for an effective transport system and the best way to achieve this is to incorporate elevated lines or ‘skytrains’, according to Melbourne researchers.

The Institute Of Structural Engineers, based in London, recently announced that the Melbourne School of Design won best education project at the Structural Awards 2015. This is a significant award as it covers several categories, and is awarded "for excellence in the structural design of buildings… which either facilitate learning or support healthcare…”

The University of Melbourne’s newest building, Melbourne School of Design, to house the Faculty of Architecture, Building and Planning has been launched today.

The future of design education will be on display from next week, with designs for the new Faculty of Architecture, Building and Planning on showcase for the first time.

An international jury has deliberated over design ideas submitted to the Melbourne School of Design competition to revolutionise the humble re-locatable classroom, and the results are now in.

University of Melbourne students will be investigating how cities can be more gender ‘inclusive’ this week, as part of a travelling design studio to Montreal, Canada.
