City of Canterbury-Bankstown

The future of streets
The City of Canterbury Bankstown transformed the northern terrace of Bankstown Station into an interactive pop-up experience that showcased innovative ideas around how landscape, infrastructure and technology will advance our City, suburbs and towns to become more liveable, productive and sustainable.
Building on the success of the first Future Street event held at Circular Quay in 2017, Place Design Group were engaged to transform the plaza outside Bankstown Station into an interactive ‘Future Street’ experience. It showcased a greener, more people-oriented street enhanced with smart technologies such as charging equipped smart benches, solar powered bins, smart poles, e-scooters and e-bikes.
Working in close collaboration with Council and product suppliers, Place Design Group delivered a seven-day activation to give the local community a glimpse into a potential future and spark dialogue on the City of Canterbury-Bankstown’s projects and aspirations. The activation demonstrated how the community can be genuinely engaged to inform how the public realm and emerging technologies can deliver better future streets.
Future Street also highlighted two of Canterbury- Bankstown’s major projects under consultation; the ‘Smart CBCity Roadmap’ and ‘Bankstown Complete Streets Transport and Place Plan’.
