UQ Architecture lecture — Andrew Burges

Andrew Burges

This event is now in the past.

Join us for the first lecture in the 2015 UQ Architecture lecture series, presented by SLQ's Asia Pacific Design Library and the UQ School of Architecture.

This annual lecture series brings together forward-thinking architects and provocateurs who are each engaged in the generation of new knowledge, ideas and strategies within the field of architecture.

Kicking off the series in 2015 is Andrew Burges from the Sydney-based Andrew Burges Architects (ABA). ABA's work is informed by the idea of architecture as 'geography making' — trying to understand how each project can be shaped by, and help shape, the geography of a site and locality. Prior to founding ABA, Andrew worked internationally in New York and Boston developing expertise in large scale urban master planning and urban housing proposals, and was responsible for winning the bid for Sydney 2000 Olympic Village Competition, going on to be the project coordinator for the Village design.

Join us for the first UQ Architecture lecture to hear Andrew share the strategic thinking behind his firm's work and projects. 

Come along to widen your knowledge base, be inspired and gain valuable insight into the design processes and solutions of the contemporary architect.

The series commences on 10 March and runs weekly on Tuesday evenings (excluding 7 April) at 6.30pm, with networking and refreshments from 6pm. If you can't make it to any of the events, check out the recording after the event on Design Online.
