MINI Portraits: Wolveridge Architects

MINI LIVING ? INVERT 3.0 will bring together architects and RMIT architecture students to explore the potential of our laneways. In the lead-up to the exhibition, we?ve asked participating architects to give us a tour of their favourite Melbourne laneway. Watch the video and read the transcript of Qutaibah Al-Atafi from Wolveridge Architects’ tour of an unnamed lane off Northumberland St, Collingwood.

Qutaibah Al-Atafi: Jan Gehl calls this ?the life in between buildings? and what I like about it ? in Melbourne, obviously, laneways are very synonymous with the city and what it does provide is a kind of a change of pace ? so you?ve got the street and you?ve got the square and it?s really busy; one?s got cars, the other one?s full of people but here you can enjoy a quiet moment or two. What I love about about this laneway is it still bears a lot of the signs of the industrial past of the area. The reason it?s important is because a lot of the impact we?re having on the environment, I feel, [is] symptomatic of a disconnect between human beings and where we source our materials; how we manufacture things. Where do these things go"
Stay tuned for more MINI Portraits. MINI LIVING ? INVERT 3.0 will be presented from 13 ? 17 November at Rapha Melbourne, 32 Guildford Lane.
