Registration opens for 2018 National Architecture Conference

Registration has opened for the 2018 National Architecture Conference, to be held on the Gold Coast from 6 to 8 June.

Themed “Edge,” the conference will take its Gold Coast setting as inspiration for the 2018 theme. Nearly 90 percent of Australians live within 50 kilometres of the coastline (or Australia’s “edge”), with coastal cities facing the dual challenges of being the target of the majority of migration and the exposure to the threats posed by climate change.

The conference program will also interpret the conference title more broadly, considering Australia’s position on the “edge” of Asia and the challenges and opportunities presented by this relationship.

Serving as co-creative directors of the 2018 conference are Gold Coast architects Brett Saville (principal, Buchan Group) and Barry Lee (director of design, DBI Design) in collaboration with New York-based Brisbane architect Wei Jien (associate at lighting design firm L’Observatoire International).

Discounted Early Bird registrations are available until 6 April.
