The proposal looks at how we might rethink the city block and surrounding streets as we transition to 100% renewable energy.

New ‘Mobility Hubs’ are constructed in tactical locations within the city block to house electric vehicles, generate solar power, collect rainwater and provide spaces for food production & community facilities. The generated solar power can charge the electric cars, which in turn act as batteries, providing power to the city block and beyond.

Centralising the cars within these new infrastructure hubs allows the streets to be redesigned for people, providing the public with green space, walking & cycling paths, communal gardens & facilities.

The new green streets connect the pocket parks and micro public spaces commonly found in North Melbourne.
