DESIGN MATTERS: MEDIUM DENSITY SYMPOSIUM

The Association of Consulting Architects (ACA), in collaboration with Open House Perth, will present a special Medium Density Symposium

The Association of Consulting Architects (ACA), in collaboration with Open House Perth (OHP), will present a special Medium Density Symposium at WA Museum Boola Bardip’s Hackett Hall.

Following the release of the draft Medium Density Policy by the WA State Government, this special edition of OHP’s ongoing ‘Design Matters’ series will bring together representatives from government, architecture & design, planning and the development industry to present a united vision for Perth’s future density.

Some 800,000 new homes are expected to be needed in the Perth and Peel regions by 2050, and 47% of these new homes will be infill in suburbs that are full of existing identity and character. It is time to help shape a future in these places that is rich in sustainability, diversity, opportunity and amenity through the provision of well-designed medium density housing that enhances our growing communities.

The symposium program features an introduction to the draft Medium Density Policy by WA Planning Commission Chairman, David Caddy, honoured guest and Government Architect, Rebecca Moore, and addresses from a multi-disciplinary panel of contributors including landscape architects, architects and developers.

The ‘Design Matters: Medium Density Symposium’ will be held on Wednesday 31 March at WA Museum Boola Bardip’s Hackett Hall from 6pm-9pm (doors at 5.30pm). Tickets are $35 for ACA Members and $40 for non-ACA Members + Booking Fee. A welcome drink will be available on arrival, with a cash bar throughout the night.
