And a delightful line up including:
Public Realm Lab
Kennedy Nolan is a Melbourne practice established in 1999 by Rachel Nolan and Patrick Kennedy, the practice has since grown to include senior practitioners who have been critical in developing the design and ethical culture of the studio. Kennedy Nolan is a curious practice, both in terms of their deep interest in the world and also in being a little odd. The practice works on a diversity of project types which comes out of a preoccupation with design as a problem-solving discipline but also because of a genuine interest in how buildings intersect with places and all the different things people do in them. Increasingly, Kennedy Nolan is interested in how to practice in a way that cares for Country, repairing, reconciling and being positive.
LIAN is a Melbourne-based architecture practice exploring responses to Australia's necessary urban transitions - primarily in housing. The practice was established in 2020 by Lisa Garner and Andrej Vodstrcil, following a competition-winning success in the State Government’s 'Future Homes' Competition. LIAN is currently involved in the delivery of a new housing development for Nightingale Housing as well as the first approved demonstration of the Future Homes initiative in Melbourne’s western suburbs. Alongside this, the practice is engaged in a diverse range of projects that include inner-urban multi-residential, council-led housing design research, and residential alterations and additions.
Public Realm LAB - Anna Maskiell
