As the Tassie weather cools down things are heating up in the Tas Chapter this week as we prepare for the launch of the Tasmanian Architecture Awards Exhibition in Launceston this Thursday. If you are able to attend it is an excellent opportunity to support your fellow peers, the architecture industry and to promote good design to the wider community. The exhibition will be open to the public until Friday 7th June. Pop in and see this year’s entries while it’s up north and cast your vote in the People’s Choice prize. The Hobart exhibition launch will take place on Thursday 13 June 2019 – stay tuned for further details of the evening.
I also strongly encourage firms to get involved with the Discipline of Architecture and Design’s Work Integrated Learning (WIL) Program. This work experience program provides students with the opportunity to experience professional practice and develop their knowledge and skills in a real workplace environment. The placement duration is for 14-15 days and there is a high amount of interest from students seeking placements so please get involved by viewing the briefing document here and sending completed registration forms to Gregory Nolan.
