Event description
RESPONSE · ABILITY - the ability of architects to respond to diverse challenges of society, culture, environment, place, landscape, poverty

About this Event

+ 'good people and good architecture - all together'

This event differentiates itself from the big impersonal architecture conferences, where participants end up 'hanging out' with their friends, do not meet other people, and never see the guest speakers who are whisked off to VIP events. The 'all together' residential weekend format ensures that all participants stay together and get a chance to meet each other and the guest speakers.

+ a residential weekend on the beautiful Milson Island on the Hawkesbury River north of Sydney. Speakers and participants stay at the Milson Island Sport and Recreation Centre. Bunkhouse share ccommodation, meals and ferry transfers provided and included in the conference fee (and some drinks!).

+ a 'conference' to reflect upon the ability of architects to respond to diverse challenges of society, culture, environment, place, landscape, poverty - and even ‘poetics’.

+ CPD - should be eligible for 9 formal and 1 informal CPD hours

+ early bird fee $890 + GST - $979. (only for the first 60 bookings made before 14 December), after that $1,090 + GST - $1,199.

SPEAKERS

Francis Kéré, Burkina Faso and Berlin. Awarded the prestigious Aga Khan Award for Architecture (2004) for his first-ever building - a school he designed, raised the funds for and realised in collaboration with the residents of his native Gando, Burkina Faso. Kéré has gone on to become one of the most distinguished contemporary architects thanks to his pioneering of communal approach to design and his commitment to sustainable materials and modes of construction. Underpinning his architectural practice, are his past and current teaching engagements at TU München, the Harvard Graduate School of Design, the Accademia di Architettura di Mendrisio and Yale University http://www.kere-architecture.com/projects/project-overview/

Maruša Zorec, Arrea, Slovenia Commenced practice in 1992, and in 2005 founded Arrea Architecture in 2005, considered to be one of the most prominent architectural practices in Slovenia, most regarded for subtle takes on the built heritage, ‘with a deft touch in transforming such places into functional and contemporary buildings’. She is an assistant Professor at the University of Ljubljana and curated the Slovenian exhibit ‘Unveil the Hidden’ at the 2018 Venice Bienniale. https://www.arrea.si/projects

Uncle Max Dulumunmun Harrison, Yuin Elder, Australia Uncle Max has been a cherished tutor and critic at the Glenn Murcutt International Architecture Master Class, since 2005. He is an initiated Yuin man, he grew up on the south coast as part of a close community where boys and young men were still selected for initiation into ancient ways. Seeing the widespread marginalisation of his people and lack of acceptance of traditional teachings, he began his life’s work – providing a way for others to understand Aboriginal culture.https://www.ozetecture.org/max-harrison

Hugh Tennent, Tennent Brown, New Zealand Multi-award winning Wellington architecture studio with empathy for the way people live, work and play. The practice pays particular respect to core Māori cultural principles such as manaakitanga and kaitiakitanga – linked ideas that talk about the importance and duty of taking responsibility for personal health and well-being whilst also ensuring the protection of the health and wellbeing of the wider whānau, environment and community. http://tennentbrown.co.nz/projects/

Nicholas Burns, Studio Nicholas Burns, Bali, Indonesia Australian born, now practising internationally in Asia, Europe, Africa and Australia. He took advice of University of Sydney Professor Michael Tawa and decided to teach himself. ‘I’ve worked for winemakers, built rammed-earth structures and set up a design-and-build landscape company. I’ve also exhibited paintings and studied traditional Japanese carpentry’. He attended the Glenn Murcutt Master Class in 2009. https://www.nicholas-burns.com

Heleana Genaus, Healthabitat, Australia Commenced working with Dr. Paul Pholeros and Healthabitat as a student, graduating with M.Arch in 2007. Heleana “came to HH wanting to be part of an organisation that is results-focussed and operates, at all levels, with unflinching respect for people”. Because she was still young and angry, she was allowed to funnel her energies into a communications role. http://www.healthabitat.com
