Event description

Description

This symposium addresses the responsibility of practitioners in the built environment to provide creative solutions and positive action to address global humanitarian challenges.

The day will consist of two sessions. Firstly, a panel discussion with presentations by some of the most active and passionate people working on humanitarian projects, locally and internationally. Followed by a dynamic and challenging workshop exploring the need to provide creative solutions to real issues.

Panel talk:

Globally, humanity is facing the critical issues of economic instability, environmental degradation, and human displacement through natural disasters and conflict. As well as presenting the impactful work of the speakers, this talk will explore the question: how can architects, designers, planners and other practitioners in the built environment sector respond to these issues, take action and affect positive change?

Speakers:

Dr Jacqueline Thomas, Lecturer, Humanitarian Engineering, University of Sydney

Lachlan Delaney, Sago Network

Greg Norman, Health Habitat

David Anderson, Architects Without Frontiers

David Kaunitz, Kaunitz Yeung Architects

Jane Johnson, Jane Johnson Architects

Moderator: Michael Muir, Program Director, Bachelor of Design in Architecture, University of Sydney School of Architecture, Design & Planning

Workshop:

There is no universal solution to the challenges of humanitarian needs in the built environment. Over the afternoon groups will team together in a fast paced, hands-on workshop to develop creative solutions to real-world challenges.

This symposium is being held in conjunction with the exhibition Ohlen Freswind: patterns for a community school at the Tin Sheds Gallery. All proceeds of ticket sales will go directly toward fundraising for the school’s Ohlen Freswind Community School project in Vanuatu, and to the humanitarian agencies presenting on the day.


Panel talk, presentations and Q&A: 10am
Lunch provided: 12:30pm
Workshop starts: 1:30pm
