Megacity Housing - 24 October, 2018
Art Gallery of New South Wales, NSW, Australia
Maintaining affordability and liveability in Australia’s growing cities demands new housing solutions. Can creative approaches to providing housing that include re-thinking ownership structures, contemporary residential models and innovation in construction, meet the demands of our future megacities?

The panel discussion will be facilitated by Ksenia Totoeva of Tonkin Zuhlika Greer Architects, and past president of the Emerging Architects and Graduates Network of the Australian Institute of Architects. This event brings together practitioners from architecture, planning, community housing, commercial and government development and policy-making to explore the future of housing in Australia’s growing cities.
Date and time: Wednesday 24 October 2018, 6:15 pm – 8:00 pm AEDT
