Topic: Homifying Sydney Olympic Park

Public space owners, managers and designers in the US and Australia are dealing with the impacts of Covid-19. This webinar presents an Australian case study: Homifying Sydney Olympic Park, for discussion.

This Olympic precinct turned business-and-events hub has pivoted towards its growing residential population during Covid. Human-centred design methodologies have been applied to understand how to ‘Homify’ the park’s everyday spaces. The aim is to recreate the comfortable ambience of home, to support the community and local businesses.

The presentation will be hosted by the Chapter Presidents of ASLA San Diego and AILA NSW, Christopher Stebbins and Lee Andrews.
