To kick of the conference various ‘fringe events’ were on offer such as building tours and other festivities. The most important of these events was entitled Transform: Altering the Future of Architecture, which was an enthralling full day workshop produced by the fantastic team behind Parlour.

The Transform event featured the key note speaker Lori Brown followed by a series of panel discussions, short presentations and a group workshop activity. The caliber of the guest speakers was outstanding and the opportunity to meet some of these leaders in person was a particular highlight.

It is my intention to cover Transform in more detail in a future post, so stay tuned for details.

Upon completion  Transform it was time for a quick walk and tram ride to the Design Hub to join the official opening party.

As an emerging Architect it was a fantastic opportunity to meet and converse with some of the giants in Australian Architecture.
