Chris Knapp from Bond University and Built Environment Practice and Dr Mathew Aitchison from University of Queensland presented as part of the series on the topic of ‘Prefab… a potted history’. Together they will discuss and debate what “prefab” really means to the profession.

New Zealand has quietly become a complex Pacific nation with a polyphony of voices. With multiculturalism come questions of identity: Who decides who is a 'New Zealander'? How is place defined for those who migrate among the islands of the Pacific, Southern and Tasman oceans? How has an increasingly diverse population contributed to New Zealand's wealth of artistic and literary talent?
Join acclaimed author Lloyd Jones, co-editor of Griffith REVIEW 43: Pacific Highways, as he presents on 'what to write about', and engages in a broader discussion on the exchange of people and culture in New Zealand and how the authority of the writer's voice imagines or defines a place. Lloyd is introduced by Griffith REVIEW founding editor Julianne Schultz.
Pacific Highways explores the points of resistance and overlap and challenges perceptions of New Zealand from both sides of the Tasman.
This project is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland, part of the Department of Science, Information Technology, Innovation and the Arts.
Date - Thursday 10th April, 2014
Time - 6.30pm - 7.30pm
Venue - Auditorium 1, Level 2, State Library of Queensland

Design lovers went behind the scenes to hear how two Brisbane-based architects and their clients have worked together to negotiate issues of site, climate, sustainability, history and context to create homes that reflect the way we live today.
In-Between Room by Phorm Architecture and Design
At the home where singer/songwriter Grant McLennan of The Go-Betweens once lived, Paul Hotston of Phorm Architecture and Design has created an “in-between” room connected to an existing Queenslander. Paul and his clients Biba and Fletcher Wythes discussed the creation of this new space in relation to the cultural significance of this site.
Christian House by James Russell Architect
James Russell, the architect behind the 2013 Houses Awards’ Australian House of the Year, created this new residence in Brisbane’s north for clients David and Kate Evans. James, together with the clients and the builder Geordie Dickson, took us through the design and construction process behind this home, which like James’s other work, engages with nature and embraces and celebrates Queensland’s subtropical conditions.
