Design Matters: Medium Density Symposium

18 March 2021

The WA branch of the ACA will present a special Medium Density Symposium on Wednesday 31 March in collaboration with Open House Perth (OHP).

Following the release of the draft Medium Density Code by the WA State Government, this special edition of OHP’s ongoing ‘Design Matters’ series will bring together representatives from government, architecture and design, planning and the development industry to present a united vision for Perth’s future density.

Some 800,000 new homes are expected to be needed in the Perth and Peel regions by 2050, and 47% of these new homes will be infill in suburbs that are full of existing identity and character. It is time to help shape a future in these places that is rich in sustainability, diversity, opportunity and amenity through the provision of well-designed medium density housing that enhances our growing communities.

The symposium program features an introduction to the draft Medium Density Policy by WA Planning Commission Chairman, David Caddy; honoured guest and Government Architect, Rebecca Moore; and addresses from a multi-disciplinary panel of contributors including landscape architects, architects and developers.
