In Melbourne's Design that Moves festival a competition was held to promote pedestrian travel.. called Design for an active city the competition will see 9 shortlisted entries implemented in October. They are aimed at promoting a major thoroughfare in Melbourne city. The concept to turn a bridge into a musical instrument sounds pretty interesting. You will notice how most of the concepts involved architectural/urban spatial type interventions... shortlisted projects get $25, 000 dollars to play with so i suppose it best to spend it on something that costs. It will be interesting to see how our concepts ( to come) might compare with the ones shortlisted. How similar or different might ours be?
