Institutional
design

What is it?

Designing and redesigning the way our systems and institutions work. Opportunities for experimentation, collaboration and co-design. Build more effective, responsive and resilient systems for public policy, governance and infrastructure.

Aims of Institutional Design

  • Optimising webs of institutions, relationships and culture to create an innovative, integrated, urban environment.
  • Enabling thinking and problem-solving at the level of ‘integrated systems’ in urban life, such as crime, transport, energy, educational opportunity and neighbourhood planning, in order to frame integrated solutions.
  • Purposefully designing institutions and District ‘sub-structure’/’dark matter’ to foster dynamics of collaboration, learning and creativity.
  • Building connections that embed urban innovation with Victoria’s broader geographic, economic and social context, including the greater Metropolitan area, and other cities around the world.
