A brand new addition to this year’s Designday Pro on Friday 24 March is an exciting live stream of a stellar line-up of international architects who are speaking at the one-day ArchitectureAP Symposium in Brisbane. The symposium explores the innovative thinking and transformative projects that are creating new world cities for the emerging Asian century.
Japanese architect and 2014 Pritzker Prize laureate Shigeru Ban will present a keynote address discussing his award-winning and humanitarian architecture. His visit to Australia coincides with the presentation of his famed paper tube disaster relief shelters in an exhibition at the Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation in Sydney from 25 March to 1 July.
The ArchitectureAP Symposium talks will be streamed live at three different Designday Pro venues:
- Designday Headquarters at White Studios, Burleigh Street, Eden Terrace
- Stoke Fireplace Studio at Eden Street, Newmarket
- Fisher & Paykel at the IMO showroom, Kenwyn Street, Parnell.
