The New Village Green

Andrew Duffin delivered a buzz group session at the Australian Communities Forum in November 2012 oganised by leading social demographers McCrindle Research.

The blurring of where we live, work, socialise, shop, and entertain in the cyber world is applying pressure on creative built solutions to be responsive to the emerging generations. New technology start up businesses now want to base themselves alongside the heartbeat of our cities’ culture. Cloud storage and flexibility of working hours means that we don’t need the expansive silicon valleys of the past. The community spaces we now create need to accommodate work on the go and life on the go.
