The RAIA, AILA and PIA present a panel of cross-disciplinary speakers to discuss different perspectives on creating sustainable suburbs. The event will be chaired by Dr Elaine Stratford, Head of School of Geography and Environmental Studies and Graduate Programs Coordinator at the University of Tasmania. We are pleased to welcome the following speakers to the program:
Greg Bamford is a Senior Lecturer in architecture at The University of Queensland where he teaches architectural design and people/environment studies. Greg will discuss suburbs and suburban life - the subject of popular discussion and sustained criticism for over a century. He investigates why the private house and garden remain the most desirable residential type, even in countries with well-serviced, vibrant and charming neighbourhoods.
Daniel Khong is a Senior Urban Designer at Vic Urban. Daniel will discuss a holistic approach to sustainable living including food, transport, community and government as well as traditional topics such as waste water and energy. In addition, Daniel will discuss sustainable urban design strategies used in the design of two sustainable suburbs, Aurora and Officer.
Selena Dixon has a Bachelor in Urban Regional Planning (Hons) and works as a Regional Planning Officer. She will discuss her dissertation ‘The Tyranny of Small Decisions’, investigating the prevalence of alternative subdivision models across Tasmania and why a picture of conventionality in design appears to persist.
