The Sustainable Design Principles Event, SDPE, of 2015 focused on the UTS Dr Chau Chak Wing Building by Gehry Partners.
October 2nd, 2015
The event had a focus on the building challenges of the new wing, and how it functions as a space for the development of knowledge and ideas, serving the community.
For SDPE 2015, the organisers were taken to thinking beyond normal design boundaries to posing the question, what is more important: the design vision or our perception of what is possible? Should we be okay with the normal or should we push ourselves to go beyond standard design to develop new ways of construction?
The event was held in the auditorium of the Dr Chau Chak Wing Building in Ultimo on Thursday the 10th of September and included keynote speaker Danielle McCartney, manager of sustainability at the University of Technology, Sydney.
