SPEAKER CHANGE Robert Beson from AR-MA to replace Ginger Dosier from bioMASON on 13 May lecture.
Interested in architectural design? Join us as the Asia Pacific Design Library presents the 2014 UQ Architecture lecture series.
There are parallels between the various tasks of an architecture school and the role of the contemporary library. More than just being places where one finds existing, static information, they are places that generate new knowledge. UQ has an excellent reputation as both an education and research institution, creating opportunities to bring research into the design studio in order to generate new knowledge. The series builds on this relationship, bringing together leading designers and thinkers, award-winners and provocateurs who are each engaged in the generation of new knowledge and will give the audience something to think about.
One of the great delights in browsing a library is to stumble across other things you were not actually looking for, often coming away with something new. This year’s lecture series is entitled “720 +", after the Dewey system code for architecture. With this year’s lecture series we are hoping our speakers will be that other thing–something beyond what is already “in” the library, the “+”. We’ve invited speakers who are recognised as leading designers and thinkers, award-winners and provocateurs.
Date - Tuesdays, 25 Mar - 20 May (excl. 22 April for Easter break)
Time - 6:00pm for a 6:30pm talk (cash bar and cheese)
Venue - Auditorium 1, Level 2, State Library of Queensland
Tickets - Free, bookings required
