WGV has been selected by the CRC LCL to participate in a four year ‘Living Laboratory’ type research program that will follow the development process from construction through to occupancy. The Living Laboratory concept is a ‘learn-by-doing’ approach to research where innovations are tested in real-life settings with the aim of informing policy and industry outcomes.
WGV demonstrates precinct-scale design excellence on a number of levels by incorporating diverse building typologies, climate sensitive considerations, plus creative urban greening and water management strategies.
Partners on this project:
- Curtin University
- Josh Byrne & Associates
- City of Fremantle
