Urban Heritage and New Architecture: Lecture and Panel

The City of Melbourne and The University of Melbourne’s Australian Institute of Art History are pleased to invite you and your friends to an important lecture and panel discussion about built heritage conservation and how this works for a growing city.

Urban Heritage/New Architecture: Where to now?

UK heritage expert Professor Andrew Saint will discuss the London experience of conservation, growth and planning. Melbourne-based planning and heritage experts will join Professor Saint for a panel that will discuss the ambition of a sustainable ’20 minute city’. The panel will also debate how well-planned growth and densification of inner Melbourne could influence prosperity and liveability. Because many value both urban heritage and exciting new architecture, is there a conflict? Have the planners got it right? Hear from our panel of experienced commentators, join in and have your say.

Keynote speaker:
Professor Andrew Saint – Senior Advisor, English Heritage, General Editor Survey of London – focused on the London experience of planning and conservation

Mr Rob Moore  – City Design, City Of Melbourne
Mr David Rolls – Group Executive, Commercial Development, Mirvac
Dr Kate Shaw

Professor Kate Darian-Smith – Professor of Cultural Heritage, Faculty of Architecture, Building and Planning, The University of Melbourne
