The Coburg Plan



The Coburg Plan is a book of photographs and essays documenting a Melbourne suburb in flux: the past lives of old Coburg and the new layers of residential architecture rewriting the landscape.Jessie Scott’s photographs, taken between 2012 and 2018, are accompanied by essays, stories and texts by Timmah Ball, Tilde Joy, Eugenia Lim, Emma McRae, Kyle Weise, Maggie Scott and Ugly Melbourne Houses, exploring what a shifting urban landscape might reflect about the economic and political forces that shape architecture, urban planning and infrastructure. Each writer has a different take on how communities and individuals living in these suburbs are influencedby these forces, or indeed, how their expectations of home and place shape and enable changes in the built landscape.
