“Great architecture and urban design at every scale also takes creativity, energy and intelligence to see the design through in all its complexity”
Kim Crestani, Director, Order Architects and Architect for the City of Parramatta
Earlier this year the Greater Sydney Commission (GSC) released it’s plan for “A Metropolis of Three Cities”, a vision for how the city can accommodate an almost-doubling of its current 4.7 million residents over the next 30 years.
As Australia’s oldest inland city, Parramatta will anchor the proposed “Central River City” region and is undergoing dramatic urban redevelopment and renewal. Hear from City Architect Kim Crestani on the ambitious projects that are underway in this “city within a city”.
With over 30 year’s industry experience, a recipient of the prestigious Marion Mahoney Griffin Award (2006), and veteran Urban Design Review Panelist, Kim Crestani is directly influencing how the city is taking shape, especially across large-scale residential and transport projects.
