The broad suburban landscape in Australia has evolved to produce few rich, strong centres,
outside of the 'shopping towns'. Because of this, suburbs rarely provide central places
whose character and function reflect the full spectrum of civic life. The structure and history
of traditional centres, which developed before the world wars, however, suggest a quality of
community life can be redefined in the suburban place. This professional paper, in
recognising this opportunity, establishes a strategic planning approach in order to
reinvigorate the traditional centre's public and private spaces. A three dimensional plan of
the subject site, Camberwell Junction, is developed to demonstrate the approach.
