LENDLEASE BRADFIELD URBANISATION SCHOLARSHIP 2016 FINALIST

Rory Green: Building a global innovation corridor
Bachelor of Engineering Honours (Aeronautical) and Bachelor of Science (Advanced)

Sydney needs to develop the infrastructure to support the knowledge-intensive, high technology, export- orientated jobs of tomorrow, according to Lendlease Bradfield Urbanisation Scholarship finalist, Rory Green.

The scholarship asked candidates to develop a concept on how they would turn Sydney into a first-tier city.  Rory, who is currently studying a Bachelor of Engineering Honours (Aeronautical) and Bachelor or Science (Advanced) at the University of Sydney, sees the value in creating a global innovation corridor across Sydney, spanning innovation and creativity from Liverpool through to the CBD and extending out to the North West.

“The economy of tomorrow is going to be focused on high technology innovation that will help to make the world a better and more sustainable place to live in”, says Rory. Building an innovative hub will create new job opportunities in the fields of science and technology, allowing Sydney to grow as a city into the future. Spreading the job market outside of the CBD will also reduce congestion and allow for better work-life balance if people are able to live closer to where they work.

Since starting his studies with the Engineering and IT Faculty, Rory has appreciated the confidence he has gained through proposing new ideas that have been turned into a reality.

Rory recently embarked on a new adventure through the university exchange program to the Imperial Collage London, where he is currently continuing his studies and enjoying living and studying in another country

The scholarship was established by Lendlease to support undergraduate students studying the development of cities and includes students from the disciplines of urban development, urban planning and design, project finance, project and facilities management, and engineering at the University of Sydney.
