Archi Team announces a new CPD seminar for architects with an expert panel addressing questions about how they can influence suburban design.

Many small to medium practice architects live in and work in suburbs and collectively change the face of their suburbs. Focussed on these architects, the CPD seminar will examine issues related to great-looking suburbs and how to make them happen, and how to influence and support planners and urban designers in improving the planning systems.

These are some of the topics for discussion at the CPD seminar ‘Planning Better Suburbs’ being held on 7 July in Melbourne.

The CPD seminar’s expert panel includes Helen Rowe of Co Design; Peter Raisbeck of University of Melbourne; William Bromhead of Ratio Consultants; and David Helms of City of Port Phillip.

Participants can earn two formal CPD points from the seminar.
