Always Was, Always Will Be: 2019 NSW Regional Conference

The Country Division of the Australian Institute of Architects’ NSW Chapeter will this year convene a discussion around perspective and interpretation in its 2019 Regional Conference, to be held in Byron Bay from 8 to 10 October.

Titled “Always was, always will be,” creative directors Sarah Aldridge (Space Studio) and Shaun Carter (Carter Williamson) have assembled a program that will ask whether architects, who are tasked with understanding place, are seeing things broadly or through a narrow, Anglo-European lens.

From the organizers:

The Australian Institute of Architects’ 2019 NSW Regional Conference will be looking to develop a deeper understanding of Country. This is not possible without architects and architecture beginning an authentic engagement on reconciliation with our first peoples. Always was, always will be will ask a diverse range of speakers to lead the audience to a broader and deeper understanding of the cultural, historical, environmental and political perspectives of the Country in which we live and seek to build on.

Among the speakers so-far announced are:

  • Sue Dugdale – Principal, Sue Dugdale and Associates (Alice Springs)

  • Dillon Kombumerri – Principal Architect, Government Architect NSW

  • Michael Mossman – Senior Lecturer, The University of Sydney, author of Architecture and the Third Space

  • Callantha Brigham – NSW Reconciliation Committee of the Australian Institute of Architects

  • John Choi – Chrofi
