PKN 14

As part of the revitalised Architecture Week, Pecha Kucha 14 will take place at Federation Square’s BMW Edge this Wednesday. This episode has taken the PK volunteers weeks to put together, and they have corralled a good mix of speakers.

Due to the Institute’s presence this time round, they have had to shift into the posh’n‘pricey riverside venue, so at least there’ll be a good view during the duller speeches. It also means the cost has bumped up to $15 and that to purchase tickets you’ll have to wrestle with the ®AIA website… there will be a limited number of tickets available at the door.

Speaker list

  • Peter Maddison (Grand Designs)
  • David O’Brien (University of Melbourne)
  • Norman Day (Normal Day + Associates)
  • Kon Karapanagiotidis (Asylum Seekers Resource Centre + Kendall Strong)
  • Paul Coffey (Architect and Carpenter)
  • Tamsin O’Neill (Green Magazine)
  • Nonda Katsalidis (Unitised Building + Fender Katsalidis)
  • Tania Davidge (openHAUS)
  • Gilbert Rochecouste (Village Well)
  • Marcus Westbury (The Age + Renew Australia)
  • Emily Ballantyne Brodie (Urban reforestation)
  • Rob Stent (Hayball)

The theme (set by the AIA this time I think): In Australia, the contribution of architecture to everyday life may seem small, with only a fraction of housing (an estimated 5%) designed by architects, and a perception that architectural design is out of reach to all but a wealthy few. But is there more to the role than meets the eye?
