This paper investigates the notion of 'urban dynamism' through the conceived and lived street life of Bangkok, Thailand and Melbourne, Australia. Each city provides a contrasting experience, namelyBangkok's organic dynamism and the city's administrators varied attempts to control and organize it, and Melbourne's conscious planning and design to rejuvenate urban spaces, through the formal strategies of the Victorian State Government and the City of Melbourne.
