The Asia Pacific Space Designers Alliance (APSDA) is a collaborative network of fourteen design associations from across the region, and is this year bringing its conference to Australia for the first time – focussing on the theme of ‘home’.
September 22nd, 2016
Since founding in 1998, the APSDA has met every two years in a host city within the region for a 1-day General Assembly (GA) and 2-day conference slash congress event. 2016 is the first time APSDA will be held in Australia, exploring the theme of ‘home’.
