The Melbourne Innovation District (MID), is the result of a partnership between RMIT University, the City of Melbourne and the University of Melbourne. The partnership capitalises on the opportunities to establish shared projects and places to enhance Melbourne’s future by creating new jobs, enterprises, services, and spaces that will contribute to Melbourne’s success as it grows.

We along with our partners ASPECT Studios developed a Public Realm Action Plan for the MID. The District is envisioned as a series of connected hubs, linkning those engaged in innovation across Melbourne, Victoria and the world. Highlights include research into innovation precincts, future digital frameworks in urban spaces, urban regeneration and connection between research, industry and community.
