National Architecture Conference (postponed)

Note: This event has been postponed until later in 2020. ArchitectureAU will update this page when new dates are available.

Justine Clark, Maryam Gusheh, Emma Williamson and Kieran Wong are the creative directors of the 2020 National Architecture Conference, which will take “Leverage” as its theme.

The conference will ask a number of questions about how architecture can be leveraged to effect change. How can we exploit our contemporary professional circumstance, training and knowledge to instigate positive change well beyond our disciplinary remit? How can architectural wit and intelligence, agility and diligence, cheekiness and humour, restraint and flamboyance, ethics and goodwill maximise impact and advantage?

Speakers so far announced include:

Alan Ricks, founding principal and the chief design officer of MASS Design Group. (Boston, USA).

Rory Hyde, a designer, writer and curator of contemporary architecture and urbanism at the Victoria and Albert Museum. (London, UK).

Mariana Ordóñez Grajales and Jesica Amescua Carrera of Communal, a practice with a “democratic vision of participatory architecture.” (Mexico City, Mexico).

Nancy Levinson, the editor/executive director of Places Journal, which aims to “harness the power of public scholarship to promote equitable cities and resilient landscapes.” (San Francisco, USA).

Jude Barber and Nicola McLachlan of Collective Architecture, an employee-owned and controlled studio (Glasgow, Scotland)

Danna Walker, founder and managing director of Built By Us, a social enterprise championing greater diversity and inclusion in the construction sector. (London, UK).
