Andrew Daly, Leftovers and in-between (2010) Australian cities face some significant densification in the next half century – issues which remain at the forefront of political and social discourse. Urban form, in some way, must necessarily respond to these pressures through not only new developments, but also it needs to focus on how the existing latencies and opportunities within the existing environment could be re-programmed, re-appropriated and re-energized to become a productive part of density and culture in our cities.


Since 1951, the Byera Hadley Travelling Scholarships has awarded over $1 million dollarst to recipients to undertake a course of study, research or other activitiy approved by the NSW Architects Registration Board which allows: "the promotion and encouragement of education of students of and/or graduates in architecture".
