Standing at the edge of a site and looking in, or standing in the middle and looking out? They are two very different starting points for design. This forum will consider these two approaches, including the influence of abstract mapping and how we can be more connected to place in our design approach, and how the site is connected to a wider dynamic system.
MPavilion’s third annual BLAKitecture forum brings together Indigenous built environment practitioners on the Yaluk-ut Weelam land of the Boon Wurrung people. The forum aims to centralise Indigenous voices in conversations about architecture, the representation of histories, the present state and the future of our built environments. BLAKitecture 2019/20 is curated by Sarah Lynn Rees and Jack Mitchell.
