Forum 3000 event – City Design Guide

Our Members’ Event and pre-dinner drinks night is next week on Thursday 1st November 2018 at 6:00 pm at the Kelvin Club (14-20 Melbourne Place just off Russell Street). This month we are pleased to welcome a guest speaker from the City of Melbourne – Andy Fergus. Our guest will discuss the Central Melbourne Design Guide which is intended to raise the bar on the design quality of development outcomes in the Central City and Southbank.

Andy Fergus is an urban designer at the City of Melbourne, co-director of Melbourne Architours and teaches at the Melbourne School of Design. Andy currently works on major projects and the development of design policy in central Melbourne in addition to his role as a licensing committee member of Nightingale Housing and small architectural projects. He has a strong passion for cities, with an interest in how the design of living environments shapes the vitality and tolerance of urban places. Andy’s multi-disciplinary background encompasses urban design, urban planning and architecture, reflecting experience and interest across all scales of the urban environment. With current and past roles in government, not-for-profit, private sector planning and urban design, activism as well as architectural practice, Andy brings a strong understanding of both top-down and bottom-up approaches to urbanism.
