HOUSING REINVENTED: discussions on new models of home
“Our cities are changing and so are the ways that we inhabit them…Housing Reinvented poses the question: How might we balance a person’s lifestyle desires with the communal needs of a diverse, growing and ageing population?”
- Tagline to a Sydney Architecture Festival event held Friday, 2 October 2015 (SOLD OUT)
Invited panellist Guy Luscombe of AJA along with several other esteemed guests, addressed the demands for housing in a transforming context. Guy’s aged care design experience and recent overseas study trip of innovative approaches to aged care (culminating in a Byera Hadley funded report), contributed to the discussion with thoughts that society is changing and where we are living is also changing – what strategies are there to cope?
It was a stimulating discussion that not only looked to the panellists for analysis, opportunities and details but was chaired in a way that engaged with the views and observations of the audience.
Hannah Burgess, the AIA Events Officer, gave feedback, “Housing Re-Invented has been praised as one of the standout events of the festival program, both by attendees and the Event Directors who have steered the curation this year.”
AJA thank the other invited panellists Senator Scott Ludlam, Christine Major, Bradley Swartz, Catherine Karena and George Karageorge, and to the chair, Tarsha Finney and a final thanks to the SAF for supporting this challenging area of ‘future living’ that warrant broader examination, discussion and action.
