Vertical Villages: Community, Place and Urban Density Report
This research report seeks to answer the question ‘How do we create socially connected communities in high rise developments which enhance community wellbeing?’
It calls for urban designers and placemakers, architects, planners, developers, State Government, and council bodies to re-examine the way they build high-rise dwellings to enhance resident wellbeing.
The Vertical Villages: Community, Place and Urban Density Report developed by Macquarie University in a partnership with, Faith Housing Alliance (supported by a grant from the Salvation Army) and BaptistCare, outlines key considerations and improvements to resident experiences that will help to promote overall wellbeing and community connection in cities.
Written for both community development and design practitioners.
