A design proposal from the Network for Advanced Architecture and Urbanism (NAAU) of Melbourne, Australia, shows how an industrial brownfield region might be transformed into a center for clean-energy development, sustainable agriculture, and eco-tourism. Titled “The Cultured Landscape,” NAAU's proposal was developed as an entry in a competition called “Transiting Cities -- Low Carbon Futures,” organized by the Office of Urban Transformations Research (OUTR) at Melbourne-based RMIT, a university of technology and design. The competition challenges urban designers to develop a vision for transforming the City of Latrobe and the surrounding valley from a center of coal mining and conventional electrical generation into “an innovative hub for low carbon solutions.” Coal-fired generation is slated to discontinue in the valley by 2030, and OUTR is seeking solutions for development and recovery of the region after that change.
