The Hobsons Bay Wetlands Centre is a proposed purpose-built facility set within the unique, natural habitat of Melbourne’s western suburbs amidst a transforming industrial landscape. Grimshaw Principal and project lead Eduard Ross invites guests to join him on a walk and talk near the proposed site at HD Graham Reserve. Hear about regenerative, climate resilient, and biophilic design principles in the vision to create a place where everyone can connect with nature and Country to learn, improve health and well-being, and be inspired to care for nature through an innovative, sustainability-focused, interactive wetlands centre. Also, hear about the aims of the centre to foster environmental education and raise awareness of the importance of wetlands in the local ecosystem.
