The 2022 Queensland Regional Symposium, ‘Regional Futures: A Collaborative Perspective’ will take place on Darumbal Country, in the coastal town of Yeppoon in our great Central Queensland Region in October 2022.
Queensland Chapter President, Amy Degenhart said the Yeppoon was an apt setting for the symposium.
“The name Yeppoon is believed to mean ‘the place where the waters meet’,” she said.
“This is ideal for our symposium, which explore ideas and possibilities presented by the past, present and emerging best practice examples in the regions – many of which are highly collaborative in nature.”
“Queensland is a regional state with many great examples of innovative and collaborative practice across the regions, from the far north to the south of the state,” she said.
Recent climate disasters such as floods, fires, and pandemic outbreaks have the architectural profession thinking about sustainable buildings as well as sustainable ways of practicing professionally in a changing climate.
“The recent health and increased frequency of climate disasters, such as the pandemic and the flooding across eastern Australia, have highlighted the need to rethink and reconsider new ways of designing and perceiving architectural outcomes, ” she said.
The symposium will be held on the 27-29th of October. More information and registrations available QUEENSLAND REGIONAL SYMPOSIUM – Australian Institute of Architects (architecture.com.au)
