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’.

2016 APSDA Adelaide aims to build upon the significance of home and open up ideas of design through a series of place-centred events, including hosted design centric dinners, expositions, cultural events and a suite of tours and activities for students, capitalising on Adelaide’s scale and regions.
