Rural Architecture - Designing Residences for the Australian Ladscape
Join two inspiring discussions about designing for the Australian landscape with two of Australia’s most respected architects.
Topic 1: Designing residences for the Australian Landscape with Justin Quinlan
Find out some of the specific climatic issues facing architects when designing in the Australian countryside. See how the typography of the Australian landscape influences the design of buildings. How does designing in remote locations differ from designing in urban environments? What methods can be employed to deal with an excess of space in rural sites? How does the materiality of a building contribute to its identity and sense of place?
Justin Quinlan of Quilan Group projects has been featured in more than 30 different architectural and news publications and has received multiple awards, including placing second in the 2013 International Design Grand Prix in Milan.
Topic 2: Climatic Architecture, Snowies House, Leura House by James Stockwell
Discuss passive solar (biophilic) architecture that ’s derived from the climate and natural systems, and built of local, low embodied energy material.
James Stockwell has received State and National awards including the Wilkinson Award in NSW and Blackett Award in NSW and the Alan and Beth Coldicutt Award for Sustainability in Victoria.
