Event description

Description

Please join us at the Faculty of Architecture, Design & Planning for a symposium related to the upcoming Tins Sheds Gallery exhibition, Designing Affordability: Quicker, Smarter, More Efficient Housing Now. Recently shown at the AIA in New York City, the exhibition presents case studies from Australia and around the world that address ways of reducing costs without compromising design quality.

The symposium will host presentations by exhibition curator, Marc Norman, and Australian practicing architects, researchers and residents, followed by a series of moderated discussions. Together, speakers will examine building innovations, living situations and progressive partnerships that can bring down the cost of housing and incorporate affordability. The symposium will address how architects, planners, engineers, policy makers, tenants and homeowners are crafting innovative ways to reduce the cost of housing and increase opportunities by rethinking how we build, maintain and occupy structures.
