How’s the Amenity? Renewing the Great Australian Dream

28 February 2024

Join ACA WA and Woods Bagot for a panel conversation presented as a part of the Perth Design Week 2024.


Dive into density with some of Australia’s most forward-thinking place makers, academics and advocates, who are coming together for a panel discussion on how to shift Perth’s hearts and minds towards density.

Drawing from a range of expert perspectives, the discussion will centre on debunking the Great Australian Dream, unpacking how the goal of owning our own standalone home as an urban model can also be an obstacle to sustainability, accessibility and vibrancy.

Kukame McPierzie (ACA WA President and Woods Bagot Perth Studio Principal) will be joined by:

  • Dr Julian Bolleter, Director of Australian Urban Design Research Centre (AUDRC) at UWA;
  • Ant Nelson, Global Creative Director at Era-co; and
  • Kate Fitzgerald, Director at Whispering Smith, New Resident and Vice President of ACA WA.
