Streets Without Cars is an unsolicited urban design project initiated in late 2013 by Mihaly Slocombe, an emerging architecture practice located in the inner north of Melbourne. The project has now been expanded into a Design Thesis studio for the Melbourne School of Design. This studio is taken by Master of Architecture students as their final design project prior to graduation.
The project asks the question: what opportunities exist when we reimagine our streets as spaces for pedestrians instead of cars? The entire City of Yarra will be examined, with fifteen streets without cars strategically dispersed across the municipality.
