Rachel Neeson and Nicholas Murcutt
Neeson Murcutt projects, as is the case for many practices, are both singular and part of evolving set of ideas. It is hard to talk about one project without thinking about another. Their thoughts range from strategic consideration regarding siting or questions of density through to material choice and their elaboration. Rachel and Nicholas are going to discuss their ideas and thoughts through a range of architectural projects.

Renowned ESD architect, consultant and award winner Tone Wheeler presents the essential green design solutions that practising architects need. Following a recap of the 4 principles of sustainable building design as featured in the Real Green Design seminars of 2008, this 2 hour seminar presents cutting edge green case studies for 4 building types: Greener houses, Medium and Higher Density Housing, Commercial buildings and Hybrid buildings. All case studies selected are appropriate to the local climate, many are award winning built examples, and all are explained with diagrams and performance results where available.
