words@bld50 monthly talks


Council House 2 - Walking tour

"We need a new framework for architecture, in line with current scientific thinking . . . in which the phrase sustainable development becomes sustainable retreat"
Michael Pearce, Design Inc

Date: Thursday 6 September 2007
Time: 6pm SHARP
Place: CH2 building, 200 Lt Collins St, Melbourne

TRANSPORTED is the theme at architects for peace this September, and words @bldg50 is on the move! A year after the opening of Council House 2, and the subsequent launch of the arch-peace pro-bono service, we’ll be revisiting the building to see how it’s performing.

Michael Pearce, lead design architect on the project, will take a walking tour through CH2 and position it within the framework of “sustainable retreat”, that he argues needs to replace the sustainable development catchcry.

Michael has worked in the UK, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Australia and has extensive experience in implementing sustainable technologies in both first and third world environments.

This is a FREE event, but attendance is by RSVP only, and numbers strictly limited, so get in quick! Register your details with eleanor@architectsforpeace.org by August 31 to reserve a place.
