How can we reimagine buildings to reduce embodied energy and maximise community energy? With adaptive reuse for community connection!

Tour Morris Moor with the project team, including Jamie Kerr of builder Kapitol Group and architectural lead Lawden Holmes of ClarkeHopkinsClarke. You’ll see how to save 19 million kilos of embodied carbon while transforming Moorabbin’s mid-century Phillip Morris factory site into a commercial development built around community connection.

Join a panel discussion afterwards including Morris Moor developer Marcus Jankie of Up Property, architect Gaston Nogues of ClarkeHopkinsClarke Architects, tenant Annalisa France of Air Aroma International, and adaptive reuse advocate Robbie Neville of Revival Projects. The panellists unpack the new wave of adaptive reuse communities delivering ambitious ESG solutions and practical ways to become better custodians of precious materials. Discover why adaptive reuse is driving great placemaking worldwide.

Tickets are $7 and include a complimentary drink.
