Housing shapes the way we live and the cities we inhabit. Join a conversation about new trajectories in residential architecture with local and international architects. Presented by Architecture Media, Housing Futures is a one-day symposium where speakers will explore the individual dwelling, apartments and aged, multigenerational and student housing. The keynote presentations will be interwoven with moderated panel discussions that draw on the experience and expertise of industry leaders. This is an intimate event where audience participation is encouraged.
The forum will be co-located with the 2015 Houses Awards presentation, to be held that evening.
