Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.

  • JUST ANNOUNCED: The Living Cities Forum is returning to Melbourne in July!  For as long as humanity has traded, materials have flowed. The Living Cities Forum 2022 theme 'Material Flows' will examine the global material flows that underwrite our growing built environments.  The day-long forum will feature globally celebrated thinkers, architects and urbanism experts—the first round of speakers to be announced includes Ghanaian educator and architectural scientist Mae-ling Lokko, Netherlands based architect and educator Joseph Grima, Canadian landscape architect Jane Hutton (virtual), and British architect and co-founder of Dark Matter Labs Indy Joha.  Speakers will explore if the current global disruptions to material flows—as a result of the global pandemic, wars and other destabilising factors—might well be our chance to rethink the materials we have taken for granted.  This will be an opportunity to rethink logistics as ethics and to reframe scarcity as the catalyst for new abundance.  Thursday 21 July, 9am-5pm
The Edge, Fed Square Melbourne

  • Sean Godsell—master craftsmen and MPavilion 2014 architect—has been named the winner of the 2022 AIA Gold Medal! 👏  The gold medal is the highest honour awarded by the Australian Institute of Architects and incredibly well-deserved recognition of Sean’s 40-year career and influence on architecture in Australia.  Sean designed the inaugural MPavilion 2014—conceived as architecture that ‘bloomed like a flower’ each day and opened to its audience, and also held a mysterious box-like quality at night.  The jury recognised Godsell’s lifetime’s work demonstrating “an extraordinary commitment to excellence in design, detail and resolution”.  For a small practice that has completed a relatively small number of dedicated projects, his level of international recognition is unparalleled. Among his many international contributions and accolades, he received the 2016 DETAIL Prize in Germany for MPavilion 2014.  Congratulations, @seangodsellarchitects! 🥇  Head to the link in our bio to read more.  #MPavilion #AIAGoldMedal #SeanGodsell #SeanGodsellArchitects #AIA #Architecture
