Curated by architects Sam Rigoli and Michael Zanardo, the Architecture on Show talks are presented in association with the Australian Institute of Architects.
Our urban streets, parks and squares should be safe and vibrant places to live, work and visit. Clever and thoughtful design is the key to making ordinary places become extraordinary. Underutilised laneways, reserves and ‘left-over’ spaces present exciting opportunities for new places to come alive.
Local architect Sam Crawford, landscape architect Katy Svalbe, colour consultant Sonia van de Haar and public artist Hugo Moline will speak about their successful past and present projects in the public domain. Building on this work, each will make an original proposition for a new intervention in Marrickville’s tight urban grain, identifying compelling future possibilities.
This is a free event and refreshments will be provided. Bookings are essential.
