Design Speaks: Housing Futures 2015

Housing shapes the way we live and the cities we inhabit. Join a conversation about new trajectories in residential architecture with local and international architects, including Charles Renfro (New York), Kerstin Thompson (Melbourne) and Philip Thalis (Sydney).

Presented by Architecture Media, Housing Futures is a one-day symposium where speakers will explore the individual dwelling, apartments and aged, multigenerational and student housing. The keynote presentations will be interwoven with moderated panel discussions that draw on the experience and expertise of industry leaders Paul Donegan (Melbourne), Eli Giannini (Melbourne), Marcus Foth (Brisbane), Shelley Penn (Melbourne) and Ben Hewett (Sydney).

The forum will be held at Melbourne’s NGV International on 31 July 2015. It will be co-located with the 2015 Houses Awards presentation, to be held that evening.
