Exhibition showcases Melbourne’s development

By David Amaya

An exhibition at City Gallery shows the impact of Melbourne’s vertical growth on public life on the street. 

Until April 28, the public can enjoy free entrance to Between the Street and the Sky: a Provocation for Melbourne, an exhibition that displays photos, 3D laser-printed models and videos to illustrate the development of the city.

The exhibition aims to analyse the impact of the Postcode 3000 strategy, introduced in the 1990s to establish a residential population in the CBD.

According to the exhibition curator Professor Rob Adams, “we need to think more carefully about the relationship between high rise developments and how they affect people’s experiences at street level.”

This free exhibition runs at Town Hall’s City Gallery until April 28.
