AA Roundtable is a sequence of robust discussion forums on a diverse range of topics.

These chaired public forums promote considered debate, exploring the potential of conversation, dialogue and anecdote as a way of generating architectural knowledge.

An edited transcript of each event will be published in a subsequent issue of Architecture Australia.

Sessions are free and run from 6 until 8 pm.

Be involved in the debate.


In theory, the architectural design process should be simplified by new technologies; in practice, it's now more complicated than ever. There are more stakeholders and more experts claiming a role in decision-making, and more contexts, each with constraints to understand. In confronting this challenge, how do we get ourselves together?

Join the discussion in Canberra at AA Roundtable 07.

The panel:
Stuart Candy, foresight and innovation leader at Arup Australasia; blogger on forward thinking, media, activism and design as "the sceptical futuryst".
Ben Hewett, South Australian Government Architect and executive director of the Integrated Design Commission SA, a multidisciplinary, cross-government advisory team.
Catherine Townsend, director at Townsend and Associates Architects, lecturer at the University of Canberra, participant on architectural juries and government special interest panels.
Harold Guida, partner at Guida Moseley Brown Architects, with forty years of international experience across architectural, interior and urban design projects, including Australia's Parliament House.
