About this Event

Update Friday 13 March

In view of the latest developments concerning the spread of COVID-19, Sydney Environment Institute has decided to suspended all events until further notice..

This event is part of our Critical Companions Series which celebrates innovative and rich thinking. The series aims to traverse disciplinary silos to provoke different perspectives and invite new conversations.*

The inaugural lecture will be given by Nicole Larkin, University of Sydney Masters of Architecture graduate and affiliate of the Sydney Environment Institute. Larkin’s research is based on capturing ocean pools in New South Wales and looks to publish a best practice design guideline for ocean pools as a resource for professionals and the community.

The presentation gives an overview of the Wild Edge, a project which documents NSW’s ocean pools. Set against sublime headlands and tucked into sweeping beaches, ocean pools are understated turquoise sanctuaries. Concrete walls meld with natural rock and are engulfed by the surf twice a day. If our surroundings speak to us of who we are, ocean pools tell of our love affair with the water’s edge. Practising architect and designer Nicole Larkin has traversed NSW capturing these pools through 3D models and scale drawings of each. This presentation is an overview of the project and details it’s application in a design and planning context.

The presentation will be followed by networking and drinks.

Nicole Larkin is a practising architect and designer. Her body of work on ocean pools has been fundamental in fostering value and understanding for design and architecture in NSW. Nicole graduated from a Masters of Architecture from the University of Sydney Faculty of Architecture in 2013. Most recently for her work on ocean pools Nicole was Awarded a USYD Alumni Excellence award for her significant contribution to the built environment and community. Nicole continues to undertake research on ocean pools in NSW and looks to publish a best practice design guideline for ocean pools as a resource for professionals and the community
