A lecture focussing on the work of the late Paul Pholeros and another of Australia’s most awarded residential architects, Peter Stuchbury will take place at Bond University on 19 January.

Stuchbury will lead the lecture himself, which will be the first of the Abedian School of Architecture Lecture for 2017, and will touch on his own design philosophy as well as that of Pholeros, his friend, Australian-architect, Indigenous housing expert and housing equality campaigner.

The free seminar is open to the public and will launch this year's lecture series, which will include presentations from world-leading architects, each exploring and expanding the definition of architectural practice and new design trends.

Bond University Assistant Professor of Architecture, Chris Knapp, says the first architecture lecture of the year was an opportunity for those interested in sustainable living to learn more about green design.

"We are privileged to have an expert of the calibre of Peter Stutchbury share his experience and expertise on such a cutting-edge topic, with sustainable architecture an increasing focus of design worldwide," he explains.

"Peter is an inspiration to aspiring architects and those seeking to learn more about the industry, and has mentored architects and senior students from more than 75 nations over the past 15 years in his role with the Glenn Murcutt International Architecture Master Class.

"His experience will prove highly beneficial for those looking to advance their understanding of the practice of sustainable design. 

"We look forward to welcoming Peter to host the first lecture of 2017 and pave the way for another ground-breaking series of presentations from top architects throughout the year."

Stutchbury will also spend three days with Bond University students as part of an intensive design project to expand their architectural experience.

The event is open to the public to attend free of charge. Registration is essential via https://bond.edu.au/archlectureseries
