Event description

Description

This month, in conjunction with Right Angle Studio and as part of the Sydney Architecture Festival, Insight considers the role of architects and an army of data scientists, placemakers, urban planners, sustainability experts and policy makers to keep our cities connected, considered, and liveable.

In the face of increasing density, diversity and demand, we consider how cities can be more “fluid”, more organic and adaptive, surging and receding in step with the changing needs of its inhabitants. We also ask how movement flow can be improved across and between cities, and how to create compelling and functional public and private spaces where people can pool and gather.

Helping us to understand the role of design, planning and good policy in managing the ebbs and flows of a city in flux are our panel guests:

Philip Vivian, Director, Bates Smart: Philip has led the Sydney studio of Bates Smart for over 20 years picking up no less than 24 AIA Design Awards along the way. Philip is highly sought for his vision and critical thinking, he talks regularly on cities, density, tall buildings and sustainable urban development.

Kim Crestani, Director, Order Architects/City Architect, Parramatta City Council: A member of the Urban Design Review Panels for the NSW SICEEP (Sydney International Convention, Exhibition and Entertainment Precinct), Westconnex and Sydney Metro City & Southwest projects, Kim founded the multi-award-winning Order Architects almost immediately after graduating 30 years ago.

Bruce Taper, Director, Kinesis: With 20 years’ experience in sustainability and planning, the former director of Sustainability and Metropolitan Planning for the NSW Department of Planning founded Kinesis in 2007 and has since delivered the groundbreaking PRECINX rating tool for Landcom and the Decentralised Energy Master Plan for the City of Sydney.


Insight with be co-moderated by regular host Naomi Tosic, co-founder of The Office Space, and Barrie Barton, Director of Right Angle Studio and the Paramount Recreation Club.

Barrie Barton is a lawyer by qualification, an entrepreneur by nature and a passionate urbanist who has spent most of his adult life thinking about the relationship between where we live and the sorts of people we become. He is the director of Right Angle Studio, a business dedicated to understanding and improving life in cities.

We will be hosting this months Insight at Paramount Recreation Club Rooftop pavilion. We hope to see you there!
