New City Research
10.08.2016 – 12.10.2016

New City Research
New City Reasarch is a forum created by Jan van Schaik which speculates on new ways that the planning, architecture, construction, financial and creative industries inform the complex relationships between the economic, social, political, physical and cultural components of cities.

New City Research hosted discussions with energy entrepreneurs, architects, cultural commentators, demographers, sociologists, statisticians, urban designers, economists, developers, creative practitioners, agricultural scientists and local Indigenous communities, and sought input from new and existing city constituents to inform speculative typological designs for cities.

Research Team
New City Research research investigators were: Esther Anatolitis, Martyn Hook, Emma Jackson, Mark Jacques, Paul Minifie, Cameron Newnham and Jan van Schaik.
