Design Conversations - Creating the Contemporary Waterhole
Penfolds Magill Estate 24 July 2:00-4:00pm

What does it take to draw a crowd and keep the buzz?

We ask a group of architects, designers and creative thinkers to share their thoughts, experiences and some beautiful images as we explore this question.

Come along and enjoy the warm hospitality of the Penfolds Magill Estate gallery, enjoy a tasting of Penfolds wines; including Penfolds Grandfather Tawny that made the Adelaide Review's Hot 100 wine list last year. All accompanied by some fabulous French cheese.
