Architecture Foundation Australia will be presenting the Blue Mountains Architecture Master Class, a residential studio based one week program being held with Rick Joy in the Blue Mountains Australia with Richard Leplastrier and Peter Stutchbury.
The program will be a studio based design ‘charette’, undertaken in small groups, for a project (yet to be determined), on a site within walking distance of the venue. Suggested themes include the exploration of architectural strategies that can moderate between the permeation of the external envelope in Australian coastal architecture and how this might confront more harsh climates and locations. The design program will be supported by talks from the ‘masters’ and on-going tutorial support during the week. All the ‘masters’ will stay with the participants at the venue – Jemby Ringa Lodge at Blackheath, 600 meters from spectacular Evans Lookout. The program will culminate in presentations and crits on the last Friday. More information on the program after the break.
The 12th annual Glenn Murcutt International Architecture Master Class will be taking place at the Architecture Foundation Australia from July 8-22, 2012. The two week residential studio based program has been described by many participants as ”a life changing experience” and has created a wonderful active international alumni network which includes practicing architects (older and younger), academics, postgraduates and senior students from around the globe. They are currently taking applications and the details and application form can be found here.
