Commonwealth Association of Architects
Representatives of the Commonwealth Association of Architects will descend on Melbourne for the CAA 18th General Assembly which precedes the RAIA National Architecture Conference. They will attend many sessions and social events as well as participate in their own few days of discussion.
They bring with them an exhibition entitled “A Small Sustainable Sports Centre”. This exhibition features the 20 best entries from the Commonwealth Association of Architects 7th International Student Competition, for a building with social purpose, bringing the regenerative potential of sport to a poor community. Judging criteria included site selection and principles of sustainability. This exhibition is sponsored by HOK Sport Venue Event Architecture and supported by the Architectural Review.
This exhibition can be found in the Melbourne Exhibition Centre, so make sure you have a look while visiting Form and Function.
Architext RAIA Bookshops

Last year the Royal Australian Institute of Architects (RAIA) and the Association of Architecture Schools of Australasia (AASA) jointly organized Archivision 2006, providing a platform to engage academics and practitioners to discuss issues concerning the future of architecture in Australia.
Some of the discussions generated from Archivision 2006 have inspired us to look closely at challenges facing architecture both in the industry and in the education sector. For example, in the area of research there has been much discussion going on to identify appropriate research indicators in the discipline of design.
Archivision 2006 has provided us an opportunity to gain understanding on a range of issues confronted by architectural education and the profession in the 21st Century.
This year we anticipate Archivision 2007 can further generate meaningful discussions between academics, practitioners and students. The program has been revised and input sought from a wide range of participants to assist in formulating appropriate recommendations that can help to improve the profession.
Archivision 2007 is a one day event, to be held in conjunction with National Architecture Conference at Melbourne Exhibition Center on Thursday, 19th April 2007.
The forum is open to selected participants only. Discussions and workshop outcomes generated from the forum will be released at a future date.
