1 Formal CPD Point

The Australian Institute of Architects invites you to a lunch-time seminar on the 21 August to hear from Dr. Rosemary Kennedy, Dunbar Fellowship recipient 2017.

This session will be an opportunity to hear the results and findings of the research she undertook during 2018 investigating climate-responsive place-based tall residential buildings. Rosemary will share insights on high-density living in tropical and subtropical South East Asian megacities and some planning and green building policy issues. You’ll learn what innovative architects do to achieve alternative designs for projects with the same scope, complexity and regulations, as the energy-intensive ‘glass box’ typology and gain an understanding on factors and strategies that can influence the emergence of potent climate-based architecture in Australia for both private and public benefit.

About the Speaker

Dr Rosemary Kennedy F.R.A.I.A. has published more than 60 articles sharing innovative trans-disciplinary research and practice in the area of climate-responsiveness and liveability in subtropical and tropical regions globally, including the influential publication Subtropical Design in South East Queensland, a Handbook for Planners, Developers and Decision Makers. She is an award-winning architect and is currently an elected member of the Australian Institute of Architects Queensland Chapter Council. Dr Kennedy is the inaugural recipient of The AIA Dunbar Fellowship.

The purpose of the Dunbar Fellowship is to undertake a program of study and/or research in Asia and/or the islands of the South Pacific Ocean (excluding Australia and New Zealand), that will in the view of the RAIA contribute to the advancement of architecture and its practice in Australia.
