Project: LANDSCAPE URBANISM
Author: Mike White
From Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, Australia
Tutor: Melanie Dodd and Diego Ramirez-Lovering

This project proposes sustainable low-income housing and community infrastructure in a site located between an urban village and an informal shanty settlement in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea. It offers short stay accommodation for migrant workers, which is the largest concern for the city in terms of urban policy for future development.

This project also provides permanent housing for employees of a Community Learning Hub and temporary short- stay eco-tourism accommodation for volunteer workers on a working holiday. The project seeks to extend the economic, social and cultural resources of a marginalised indigenous community as a model for self sufficient and sustainable urban housing typologies, productive landscape infrastructure, social services and local economic opportunities.
