Architects, thought leaders and projects that challenge the status quo.
Hosting 1000 delegates each year, the National Architecture Conference – presented by the Australian Institute of Architects – is the profession’s largest annual gathering. Featuring renowned local and international speakers, the conference provides unrivalled networking opportunities and continuing professional development to keep you at the forefront of practice.
In 2019, Collective Agency, curated by Monique Woodward and Stephen Choi, will encourage reflection on today’s challenges, the articulation of more meaningful protocols, and most importantly, the willingness to act. Discussing what was (our shared understanding), what is (our shared reality), and what could be (our shared advocacy), Collective Agency is a dual state of doing and being.
Passionate about the way political power is achieved and used, and the opposing feats of advocacy that aim to influence this power, the conference will celebrate projects from small, medium, and large practices inside and outside of architecture, demonstrating the power of empathy, enabling contribution, and in doing so, re-examining professional aspirations.
