PENRITH OF THE FUTURE- THE FUTURE OF PENRITH
Client: Penrith City Council
Architect: Tim Williams including Campement Urbain
This was a Campement Urbain project which is to be launched in October 2011. This project brings together an unlikely set of stakehoders ( Penrith Council, The MCA, the Penrith Panthers and Landcom) and the community, to allow for a vision to emerge from the people of Penrith for their City.
The artistic process undertaken by Sylvie Blocher allows for an urban fiction to be told about the city, which captures the thoughts and emotions of the many people of Penrith from all walks of life. The people of Penrith have clear and well-articulated ideas about what is important. They speak of re-establishing a connection to the river, of providing better public space and transport, of celebrating the many cultures of the city and its aboriginal origins.
