We want you to submit your ideas and propositions for the future of Melbourne! Melbourne: Megacity? is calling for contributors to submit material which explores the consequences and opportunities presented by the urban growth of Melbourne over the next 50 years. Submissions for this exhibition can take the form of design proposals, critical insights, practical solutions and speculative provocations for the future of the city. We are looking for a wide range of innovative, imaginative, and inventive ideas for the future of Melbourne.

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
A Megacity is defined as a city with 10 million inhabitants or more.
The population of Melbourne is projected to double over the next 50 years – from 5 million to 10 million – which means that by 2070 Melbourne will be classified as a Megacity. This growth in population will be accompanied by a major growth in the urban fabric of Melbourne, and those in the design industries will play a central role in determining the type of city Melbourne will become. This exhibition will give designers, architects, urban planners and thinkers a forum to present ideas and propositions for Melbourne’s future as a Megacity.

THIS EXHIBITION IS PART OF MELBOURNE DESIGN WEEK 2019 ORGANISED BY THE NATIONAL GALLERY OF VICTORIA IN COLLABORATION WITH CREATIVE VICTORIA.
