Master of Architecture and Master of Urban Planning and Design students from Monash University share their ideas for Bendigo in the Deep City: Future Scenarios for Bendigo Creek and Golden Square exhibition. Informed by the CRCWSC’s Vision and transition strategy for a water sensitive Bendigo, the exhibition presents scenarios for the future development of the historical gold mining suburb of Golden Square.
The students used drawings and models of diverse and novel infill housing types to connect landscapes that retain water in this dry, disrupted environment, and to repair the patchwork of exmining sites. Proposals for corridors and multi-use zones thicken and enliven the neighbourhood centre, while analytical drawings and models explore the regional water context at the scale of the Murray–Darling Basin.
