May Update from WA

8 May 2021

The ACA – WA reflects on the successful (and impactful) Medium Density Symposium and asks members to save the date for an upcoming event on the Business of Design.

Business of Design Lunch 2021 – Save the date

We are pleased to announce that Mr Adrian Fini – visionary developer and patron of the arts – will join us as special guest at this year’s Business of Design Lunch. Mark Friday 2 July in your diaries and stay tuned for a formal invite.

Medium Density Symposium – the momentum continues…

The WA committee has been busy leveraging on the success of our recent Medium Density Symposium at the WA New Museum. To recap, over 260 architects, landscape architects, developers and government representatives were present to discuss and critique the State Government’s proposed policy to guide medium density development across Western Australia. The event sparked interest outside our typical circles and highlighted the importance of placing architects at the centre of conversations about the future direction of our built environment. We were pleased to see this article appear in the WA Business News in response to the symposium (link).
