Atmosphere, authenticity and vibrancy at the Queen Victoria Market

In the first half of 2017 I led the team (Joanne Mihelcic, Bianca Vallentine, Sarah Pink and photographer Nick Walton-Healey) investigating how the atmosphere of Queen Victoria Markets is linked to how it is designed. This work, funded by the City of Melbourne, will contribute to planning the refurbishment of the site, a major 5-year project starting in 2017. The final report, which we delivered to the City of Melbourne in June 2017, is available here.
