On Tuesday, September 24th 2019, this critical daylong symposium will examine instances where a number of individual works of architecture have collectively heightened the qualities of public space. More than fifteen of Australia’s leading practitioners will present case studies that encourage reflection on the role of time, scale and procurement, and consider the impact of large, radical shifts in contrast with finer, incremental changes on multiple sites with diverse ownership. Although contemporary architecture is highly skilled and individually successful, our cities are deteriorating in terms of collective enjoyment and experience of the spaces held between. This event will explore means, methods, successes and failures of architecture’s role in shaping our cities.
