Melbourne Knowledge Week Activation Strategy

Prototyping the 'streets of the future'

Melbourne Knowledge Week is a week-long festival where potential solutions to the issues facing our world and future generations are explored.


The Space Agency was engaged by City of Melbourne and their key partners to design, oversee the roll-out of and manage an immersive prototype of a future Melbourne street.


Drone technology, smart traffic beacons, a co-working space and permeable paving were among the innovations and initiatives featured. In addition, the City of Melbourne Traffic Refresh Team ran workshops and RMIT University's industrial design cohort participated in a studio on waste management.
