Affirmative Architecture Symposium

Affirmative Architecture Symposium

Affirmative Architecture is a two-day symposium convened by Dr Martyn Hook of the Design Research Institute at RMIT University, Melbourne. The event seeks to define an emergent trend amongst young architects to re-engage with the ability of architecture to make life better.

The symposium draws together international and Australian architects and landscape architects who have demonstrated commitment to a social agenda and have made significant contribution to the public realm. Curated as a series of interactive lectures and panel discussions the speakers will describe their predominately built work and real projects that address real problems.

The symposium will take place in Melbourne on August 20 and 21. For more information go to the competition’s official website.
