How do we make our cities work better for us? How can we make clearer demands for better-designed spaces and places with cultural value? And what strategies can we put in place for more sustainable outcomes?

Join leading practitioners from The Gold Club, as they discuss their views on how to make realistic and inspired demands of our city, showcased at Vivid Ideas

Making Demands is a three hour session that incorporates a moderated panel discussion led by Siobhan Toohill, followed by practical workshop sessions that will interrogate the challenges across public and private sectors, unpacking the rapidly changing nature of architecture, the built environment and urbanism. The event provides professional development for the architecture and built environment community, and inspiring conversation for others interested in shaping our cities.

Proudly presented in partnership with Parlour: women, equity, architecture and Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA), The Gold Club is a guild of pivotal women in Australian design.

With a stellar line-up – Fiona Foley, Shelley Penn, Clare Sowden and Barbara Schaffer – Making Demands is a live conversation addressing the working concerns of the architecture industry. By exploring these concerns across the realms of public art, urban renewal, architectural leadership and cultural value, the event will awaken our expectations of multidisclipinary design, and motivate pragmatic and inspired responses within our city.
