Urban Design Awards recipients Fox Johnston and Tribe Studio discuss their winning projects:

Designing for the future: Fox Johnston

The urban environment is changing at a fast-paced rate putting even greater emphasis on livability and sustainability.  If higher density houseing is to provide 70% of all new homes in Sydney in the next 30 years, we need to rethink and embrace this housing type and its connection to the community. 

Fox Johnston believe a holistic approach is essential and relies on several key aspects, in particular, the integration of landscape and architecture to create thoughtful private and commnity spaces - and the idea that high density living spaces should embody all the attributes of a well designed home.  Fox Johnston will discuss these challenges and how they, as practitioners, are responding.

Architecture on Show is a series of focused events and discussions presented by the Australian Institute of Architects (NSW Chapter) and NSW based architects
