Following last week’s “tit for tat” comments in South Australia’s parliament, the Australian Institute of Architects (AIA) have called for a “more measured debate” and a considered approach to the Royal Adelaide Hospital development.
“The case for good healthcare planning in SA is not advanced by politicians of any persuasion engaging in design-on-the-run,” said Tim Horton – SA President of the AIA.
The institute is asking for a debate focussing on public discussion, that considers public transport, the river, the North Terrace precinct, city and North Adelaide.
“All of these require detailed study by those with appropriate expertise, and informed by a detailed brief,” Mr Horton said.
Horton lends his support to Professor Laura Lee (Thinker-in-Residence) who, he says, is looking to an holistic approach, drawing together government, industry and public stakeholders – focussing on building consensus.
“Let’s all take a step back and allow due process the time it needs. Everybody is interested in making the RAH a great long-term asset to the state and to make sure this is done right,” said Mr Horton.
