Cities in the Sun, A Diary for Day Dreamers, A Mullet Run and Observations from Sub Tropical South Africa and Brazil
Paul Trotter – Director of Fulton Trotter Architects, has just returned from a global tour of the southern hemisphere sub tropics after publishing his diary (created for architects with graph paper for sketching) that celebrates the sub-tropical climate of Brisbane.
Paul’s diary and adventure has been inspired by the work of his father Stephen Trotter and in his presentation he will talk about Brisbane’s sub-tropical climate in terms of Astronomy, Meteorology, Flora and Fauna and how this diary led to his journey to South Africa and Brazil.
The presentation will describe the development of the diary (design process), our climate and his architectural and urban design observations from two ‘sister’ sub-tropical cities that have so much in common with Brisbane.
Diary for Day Dreamers will be available on the night for a special discounted price of $35. They are presently available at folio for $39.95.
