Melbourne Streetscape: a critical review
AbstractThe systematic renovation of streets in cities for the purposes of street-side recreation has institutionalised streetscape as a primary focus of landscape architecture. These streetscape works are tied to strategic planning contexts and documents. This article reviews the streetscape outcomes of the City of Melbourne in relation to their policy framework as a case study, and questions whether this connection is rhetorical, and consequently whether the framework guarantees a quality outcome. Finally, the article discusses whether such methods represent an attempt to defer responsibility for public vision in public space, away from municipal authorities, to private industry.
