For the first time in seven years The National Architecture Conference will return to Sydney… and we – are – ready!
February 20th, 2017
The word’s out and we’re all over it: The Australian Institute of Architects have released the theme, and the first four international speakers, for the hotly anticipated National Architecture Conference in 2017.
The theme is ‘Praxis’ – the process by which a theory, lesson, or skill is enacted – and the conference will endeavour to explore the processes of thought, engagement and action in architecture and design; gently hinting at the point where theory informs practice.
By the same token the theme will work to encourage reflection and action in recognising rich and diverse architectural practices from renowned studios the world over.
So far, speakers include; Eva Castro of Plasma Studio, China; Rahul Mehrotra of RMA Architects, India; Winy Maas of MVRDV, Netherlands; and Sheila O’Donnell and John Tuomey of O’Donnell and Tuomey, Ireland.
The program has been curated by Ken Maher, the Institute’s national president, and Helen Lochhead, dean of the UNSW’s Faculty of Built Environment. It will be held at the recently renovated International Convention Centre in Sydney designed by HASSELL + Populous, from 4 to 6 May 2017.
