What does Design Excellence look like?

The City of Melbourne’s Design Excellence Program reinforces the city’s commitment to enhance the function, liveability, sustainability and public contribution of our buildings and urban spaces.
Designing Excellence will conclude ‘The Excellent City Series’, hosted by the City of Melbourne.

Featuring an interdisciplinary panel of academics, professionals and advocates, the event will reflect on the key themes explored in the series:

– Designing Melbourne as an Aboriginal place
– Design and equity
– Design in the face of a climate emergency

Designing Excellence will address questions such as… How do we define ‘good design’? What does it mean to achieve Design Excellence in Melbourne? How do we – as representatives of government, industry and community – advocate for a culture of design excellence?
