    Gold Medallists join speaker line up for 2015 Student Architecture Congress in Melbourne

    Geraldine Chua

    Troppo Architects’ directors and 2014 Gold Medallists Phil Harris and Adrian Welke are joining a stellar speaker line up for the first Australasian Student Architecture Congress to be held in Melbourne since 1964.

    From the winner of the Royal Institute of Architects of Ireland’s Best Emerging Practice in 2012, to a member of the creative team for New Zealand’s first ever pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale, this year’s event boasts 15 speakers who will focus on Markus Jung’s philosophy that ‘architecture is not about form but formations of people’.

    Themed ‘People’, this year’s congress will be curated by Mercedes Mambort (RMIT), Tim Randall (Monash University) and Darcy Zelenko (The University of Melbourne). The program will look at questions of spatial relations, architectural anthropology, humanitarian architecture, advocacy and intervention, amid a backdrop of expanding populations, urban migration and tightening purse strings.

    The Australasian Student Architecture Congress, first established in the 1960s, will be held from 2 to 4 July in Melbourne. More information and tickets can be found on http://wp.architecture.com.au/people/theme/.

    Discounted early bird registrations close on April 30, Thursday.
