A Message from the NSW Executive Director

Mark your calendars for 8-11 May 2024, when Melbourne will host our landmark event, the Australian Architecture Conference – Connect, Explore and Debate.

This is the ultimate networking opportunity with peers, industry experts, and suppliers, globally and from across Australia, and we are expecting a large NSW contingency to be there!

Ten CPD points are available for architects who attend all events within days one and two of the conference program across 10–11 May.

Our recent Building Commission NSW event provided invaluable insights from both David Chandler, NSW Building Commissioner, along with Matt Press, Director of Building Operations. For those who attended in person the CPD questions and video will be available shortly. For those who missed out, the event recording and CPD options will be online and available as formal or informal CPD. Thanks to Craig Burns, BVN and Rob Graham, Bates Smart for sharing their expertise in our Q&A panel session.

We were grateful to host the International Women’s Day breakfast recently and celebrate our Marion Mahony Griffin Prize winner Catherine Lassen, who gave an insightful keynote on her remarkable career to date. Thanks to Laura Cockburn, Architectus and Shannon Battisson, The Mill Design Studio for sharing their thoughts and wisdom in the panel discussion.
