Dear colleagues and fellow Australian architects it is with great sadness that we hear of the sudden and sad passing of Kerry Hill LFRAIA. A true ambassador and icon of Australian architecture and leader in promoting the ‘Australian Style’ in his work internationally and in Australia. His legacy is clearly evident and seen in his notable and award winning work that has promoted the Australian Style through finely crafted work, his leadership, mentoring and inspiration for so many architects worldwide.
Vale Kerry Hill, a true gentleman, family man, mentor and totally dedicated Australian architect, you will be sadly missed. Sincere condolences to family and loved ones.
In local news, we are planning another Boarding Pass in Dubai in November and looking at two other potential events in Hong Kong and the US in the forthcoming months so watch this space for further details.
The International Chapter Architecture Awards 2019 will be launched in early November 2018 with further details of Awards Program, Awards categories and criteria and jury representation to be included in the November E-News. The important date to keep in mind is 15 March 2019 when the International Chapter Architecture Awards 2019 entry submissions close.
You will notice that the International Chapter Instagram and Facebook pages have benefited greatly from the input from Janine Campbell and our Councillors to keep our international members connected and informed of awards, events etc. Enjoy and I recommend that you view both if you haven’t done so already.
Finally, as the newest Australian Institute of Architects Chapter, we now have representation on National Council to represent the international members, conveying the needs and proposals to keep our members fully informed and connected as part of the AIA membership value proposition and information/ networking development looking forward. We will keep you posted on issues and invite our members to express any suggestions for improvements or concerns to their ICC Councillor.
Thanks and kind regards,
Paul Logsdon FRAIA
