Kerstin Thompson Architects: Encompassing People & Place Past Event
Launch and panel discussion for the book ‘Kerstin Thompson Architects: Encompassing People & Place’.
Moderated by Virginia Trioli, this event includes a presentation by Kerstin on her public and community focused projects exploring the theme of ‘cultural memory’ and including the award winning Broadmeadows Town Hall, and the upcoming Jewish Holocaust Centre.
Kerstin’s lecture will be followed by a panel discussion moderated by Virginia Trioli and aimed at drawing out differing perspectives across the procurement, community consultation and design process: the architect, the academic, the stakeholder, the artist collaborator, and the public; and touching on the role history and community memories play.
Panellists include RMIT Emeritus Professor Leon van Schaik AO, Artist, Robbie Rowlands, Jayne Josem CEO of the Jewish Holocaust Centre and Matt Wilson, Senior Urban Designer, Hume City Council
Kerstin Thompson Architects: Encompassing People & Place is published by Thames & Hudson, authored by Leon van Schaik AO, edited by Fleur Watson and designed by Stuart Geddes.
