About this event

The Rebuilt Environment: A National Festival of Design

Much like the Australian built environment itself, the BDAA National Annual Design Conference is something of an Australian landmark; the premiere celebration and yearly gathering of the nation's top building designers, a place to learn, network, present ideas, see the latest and greatest examples of Australian building design, and have fun!

This year, the conference evolves into a festival; one presented on an even grander scale, with both traditionally classic and excitingly innovative new features included for the price of a single admission ticket.

The Building Designers Association of Australia is proud to present The Rebuilt Environment: A National Festival of Design, a groundbreaking, revolutionary happening centred around the 2022 BDAA National Design Conference and 2022 BDAA National Design Awards!

Speakers Sneak peek

Social Trends Following Major Events

Dr Rebecca Huntley

In 2021, a report was published outlining how Australia can recover from the COVID-19 pandemic by focusing on the intersections of climate action, health and wellbeing and thriving communities.

What are the new requirements needed to provide bushfire protection for certain Class 9 buildings?

Dr Grahame Douglas

NCC BCA 2022 will introduce bushfire requirements for certain class 9 Buildings. Dr Grahame Douglas from the University of Western Sydney will present on these changes. Grahame is well versed in the development of AS3959 and how extension of these requirements to certain Class 9 buildings is to be achieved. Grahame will detail the philosophy behind the changes, and will discuss the implications that practitioners will need to be aware of when applying the new requirements.

She edited Architecture Australia from 1992 to 2000, and was a founder of annual city light festivals in Sydney and Singapore.

Change is the new business as usual.

Rachel Robertson

Rachael is a proven leader: having successfully led in the world's toughest workplace - Antarctica. She is recognised internationally for her thought-leadership on what great leadership actually looks like.

Rachael's knows how to get the best out teams. She will introduce and explain a set of powerful tools to build innovation, collaboration and respect. They are straightforward and memorable so you can use them immediately.

This is the story of an ordinary person doing extraordinary things. She has a unique ability to connect with all kinds of people and inspire with her story to help them to make the most of their lives.

About the speaker:

Rachael was the youngest and just the second female expedition leader to Davis Station.

Antarctica: pristine, scenic and beautiful. That's summer. Now, imagine living with your team in that place through winter: months of darkness, the temperature hovering around -35˚C (-31˚F), and there’s no way in or out…

Every little thing can become an issue in this pressure-cooker environment. In fact a $30M science program was nearly stopped over whether the bacon should be soft or crispy!

With great humour, insight and humility Rachael now brings the lessons she learned about leadership and teamwork in this toughest place to organisations and associations everywhere.

Many more!
