The Counterfactual City
2020 NGV Melbourne Design Week
The Counterfactual City series presents visions for public sites displayed as street posters erected around the city; these propositions are not based on scenarios that we know, but ones that should, could or would have been. Predicated on a counterfactual notion – a singular ‘what if?’ – each poster presents a radical alternative to the existing status quo of urban development. This series demonstrates how we might effect change to policies through speculative design.
The Counterfactual City is part of NGV Melbourne Design Week 2020
