Ken Maher, one of Australia’s leading figures in architecture and green building, will deliver a keynote speech for the 2015 Sustainability Awards to be held 8 October in Sydney.

As the current president of the Australian Sustainable Built Environment Council and President Elect of the Australian Institute of Architects National Council, Maher will share valuable insights at the industry awards, a program developed specifically to celebrate the success of those in pursuit of a sustainable built environment for Australia.

Maher is an AIA Gold Medal winner, a Hassell Fellow and a Professor with UNSW Built Environment. He is also chair of the City of Sydney’s Design Advisory Panel, a member of the Sydney Opera House Eminent Architects Panel and a board member of Urban Growth NSW and the Co-operative Research Centre for Low Carbon Living—his strong interest in the role of design in contributing to public life precedes him.
