Rewilding the City


Rewilding the City, 2021

Curated by Phillip B Roös, Simon Kilbane, Yolanda Esteban and John Rollo


What might a biophilic city look like and how could its residents benefit from a city that embraces nature through a spectrum of green infrastructure solutions?

Explore in this exhibition alternate possibilities of Geelong as a Nature-full City through design ideas from students, researchers and academics that propose an integrated ecosystem across rooftops, city plazas and future growth areas.

The Vision

The role of abundant wild nature in a truly sustainable city is often undervalued. Evidence shows that the integration of natural systems in urban and suburban areas helps cities cope with climate change impacts, as well as enhancing the health and wellbeing of urban populations. It is our vision that the City of Greater Geelong embraces biophilic design and could become a ‘rewilded and nature-full city’.
