Symposium 2021

Save the Date for Symposium: Lost opportunities

9-11 September
Adelaide Convention Centre

Join us in Adelaide as an outstanding group of speakers discuss projects that were never realised and how they have influenced and affected our communities.

In any successful architect’s career there are instances where great visions are unable to be realised. Architectural expressions develop more from those lost opportunities than from any other place; such is the pain of developing an unrealisable seminal work.  

Lost Opportunities will showcase international and domestic projects that were significant to their author but were never completed; projects that represent lost opportunities not just for the architect but the entire cultures in which they would have existed.

Unrealised projects are a crucial and universal aspect of practice; necessary for the development of important ideas in the work of all architects. Come along to take a look inside these buildings and legacies that could have been.
