Mini Melbourne was created to learn and test different design themes for public spaces!
Students can even explore an archeological excavation site in Mini Melbourne!
Mini Melbourne was nominated as finalist for the 2020 Benchmark Awards
About the project
When the Department of Education and Training Victoria asked us if we could find a way to make people participate in designing the Town Hall Station we got right to the task. We applied our experience in building city landscapes from our immersion series and investigated possibilities to create room to experiment with different designs based on the information we got from our customers.
In combination with the design of the station, there were also archaeological excavations going on which were also included in the map.
After this product went live, it got to be integrated into the classrooms of 1600 public schools in Australia making it available for over 600,000 students.
Participate with those who live in an area to develop what's important to the people that know the space best.
