Multiplicity is a new vision of the future of Melbourne by John Wardle Architects and Stefano Boscutti. It has been selected by the Australian Institute of Architects for the 2010 Venice Architecture Biennale.
A city tells a story and there are now multiple cities, multiple stories within the original street grid first set down by surveyor Robert Hoddle. Over this is a new horizontal plane of agriculture, energy production, rainwater harvesting and air transportation that serves the cities below.
Multiplicity answers the issues of climate change, population growth, sustainable resources, ecological systems and technological advances in the built environment.
Multiplicity aims to make Melbourne a city of the future.
