Debating architecture

Melbourne has a series of architectural debates running at the moment. I’m aware of this because I was in one. That is part of the reason it’s been a little quiet here – lots of things waiting to be written, but all for others. That’s what happens in careers sometimes – the hobbies start to take more of a centre stage. I write about architecture a lot and produce it a little.

Venice in retrospect

I must apologise. A student from RMIT asked if I would publish this last October and I said, ‘sure!’ and then I somehow forgot. Although it is about a student’s visit to the 2010 Venice Bienalle, which was a while ago now, it is still relevant. It is about a student who goes to Venice to see the architecture, and instead ends up drowning in canapes and crashing parties. Which all leaves him feeling a bit sick.

State of Design

This starts this week – I have looked through the pickings and list most of the architecture-related ones below. Lots to do. Tried to post in the events forum but it broke under the strain (must fix that..)
