Event description
We warmly welcome you to our inaugural Swinburne Architecture Student Association Lecture, held in the newly opened Swinburne Protolab.

About this Event

Dr. Ian Woodcock will be exploring the catalytic scenarios of the level crossing removal projects as opportunities of place making and economic development. Building on his research paper, ‘Speculation and Resistance’, Ian will explore the challenges architects and urban designers face in navigating the outcomes for the community while allowing economic development to occur.

Ian will also be touching on the other studio projects he has run with a core focus of ‘design as research’.

Dr. Ian Woodcock is Senior Lecturer, Director of Urban Design in the Department of Architectural and Industrial Design at Swinburne University of Technology, Melbourne. He is a UK-registered architect with over 30 years experience encompassing practice, research and teaching, across government, private and community sector settings.

Take a look around you, and you’ll see the impacts of Ian’s research. The effect of his contribution to elevated rail is evidenced by the adoption of 'sky-rail' for many grade separation projects in Melbourne since 2016.
