National Architecture Conference

Sydney,
4-6 May 2017

The National Architecture Conference is one of the biggest events of the Australian architecture calendar and 2017 will be no exception as the conference returns to Sydney for the first time in seven years.

One of the first events to take place at the brand new International Convention Centre, Sydney designed by HASSELL + Populous, the stimulating conference program has been curated by National President Prof Ken Maher and Prof Helen Lochhead. Their industry expertise and international connections have inspired a program that explores processes of thought, engagement and action: process, propositions and production.

PRAXIS (the process by which a theory, lesson, or skill is enacted) involves thinking and making. Commencing with a thoughtful examination of a theoretical position that informs the process, a pause between thought and action, the conference will examine projects through the lens of design thinking, design process, and design actions. PRAXIS will weave together reflection and action profiling the rich and diverse modes of architectural practice globally in today’s world through the work of renowned practitioners spanning diverse locations and modes of practice.

The conference program will be complemented by an invigorating and interactive fringe event schedule that will be exclusively available for conference delegates so make sure to purchase your registration today and be the first to secure event tickets when they open.
