Ideas for a Better Profession

3 May 2021

The NSW/ACT branch committee is delighted to present another face to face event on Thursday 27 May, with speaker Michael Lewarne exploring important questions about the nature of architectural practice and how we might do things differently in a post-COVID world.

Even before Michael Lewarne completed his architecture degree, he was curious about the practice of architecture. It led him to many questions, such as:

  • Why do we do it this way?
  • What else might practice look like?
  • How are architects contributing to the problems they experience in practice?
  • How might we exploit the innate skills of architectural practice for more than designing a building?
  • How can we be more generous and connect with others?
  • What do we want our legacy to be?

Through questioning, Michael has had many provocative and thought-provoking conversations. The NSW/ACT Committee invites you to join Michael for this important conversation and to take the opportunity to catch up with colleagues and friends, to consider the possibilities of post-COVID practice, and to contemplate the year ahead.


Michael Lewarne is an architect and coach out on the edge of architecture challenging assumptions, questioning the way we practise architecture and uncovering better ways to do our work. He founded unmeasured to support architects in their practice through coaching, workshops and community – working to build better practice, culture and leadership in the profession.
