This report outlines four innovative approaches to drainage and flood management in the Arden Macaulay precinct of Melbourne. These transformative concepts, which have been generated from the Arden Macaulay Design Investigation, investigate how underlying landscapes could inform development scenarios and building form by prioritising water as a driver of city form. In these proposals Arden Macaulay emerges over time as a resilient, adaptable and liveable place that can deal with future impacts, such as high levels of intensification and the changing water conditions created by climate change.
