Capping off COX’s Regenerative Design month is Professor Dan Hill, the Director of the Melbourne School of Design, the graduate school of the Faculty of Architecture, Building and Planning at the University of Melbourne.
An acclaimed designer, urbanist, author and thought leader, Dan has held leadership roles across the globe, including at the Vinnova in Sweden, Arup in London and Sydney, Future Cities Catapult, Fabrica, SITRA and the BBC. He has lived and worked in the UK, Australia, Finland, Italy and Sweden.
He is also Visiting Professor at UCL Institute for Innovation and Public Purpose, Oslo School of Architecture and Design, Design Academy Eindhoven, and an Adjunct Professor in Design at RMIT University. He is a founding member of the Council on Urban Initiatives, a joint initiative between UCL, LSE Cities and UN HABITAT. Dan was also an inaugural Design Advocate for the Mayor of London, and served as a Trustee of Participatory City Foundation.
Dan has particular expertise in designing social and cultural infrastructures, in urban contexts such as Melbourne Innovation District, Manchester’s Northern Quarter, Google’s global campuses, and the University of Melbourne campus, and on buildings such as the Victoria anf Albert Museum, British Library, UAE Museum of the Future, State Library of Queensland, ACMI, Collingwood Yards, and central library strategies for Melbourne and Sheffield.
So join us for Dan’s talk ‘Regenerative Placemaking,’ the second of two free public events COX is hosting as part of our Regenerative Design Month.
