The Learning & Teaching Building lit in brilliant orange at @Monash_Uni ⠀ ⠀ #repost ⠀ "Golden Hour at the Uni." 📷 @wanderlust2711

Our project at 271 Spring St in context with our previous project The Urban Workshop rising behind.⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ These two buildings are part of the original precinct vision set around the historic buildings and street patterns of the area once known as the Little Lon district.⁣ 271 Spring St will be a new home for @australianunity by @isptproperty and @probuildconstructions .⁣⠀ A wonderful soundtrack supplied by @sigmond_ & 🎥 @byrickJordan⁣⠀

Design elements continue to emerge as construction progresses at Phoenix Gallery in Sydney. This week the 6 metre high ’droplets’ window was delivered and has been carefully lifted into place into one of the major gallery spaces. Those visiting the gallery will look through these circular portals into Central Park and the world beyond. . Phoenix is a multifaceted project with a gallery by ourselves and a performance space by Durbach Block Jaggers. . @durbachblockjaggers @fdc_group @ttwengineers @whitehotrabbit @Krausebricks⁣ 📷@rileysherm⁣⠀

We were lucky to have the inimitable photographer John Gollings visit our projects on Bruny Island at the Tasmanian Architecture Symposium last weekend. He has shared a couple of images from the tour that we couldn’t keep to ourselves. ⁣⠀ See the link in bio to read more about the ‘weekend of learning in the Tasmanian landscape’. 📷@johngollings⁣

⁣Great to be involved in the @designspeaks_au Tasmanian Architecture Symposium over the weekend. A wonderful opportunity to open up John’s personal projects to an enthusiastic group of visitors and share tales of local folklore and the histories of Waterview Farm.⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ 📷 @trevormein & @andywongplus

Monash Caulfield Library has won the Academic category at the 2019 Australian Library and Information Association Design Awards!

For International Women’s Day we asked two practice Principals to draw on their respective 25-year careers in architecture to explain why diversity is important in design. This is what they said: ⁣⠀ ⁣. “The context in which we design is increasingly complex. To navigate this, we need to bring different perspectives to the table. This begins with diversity in our workforce, which in turn mirrors the more diverse community with which we engage.” – Meaghan Dwyer⁣⠀ ⁣. "Diversity in design thinking is fundamental because it’s smart business. We design places for work, learning and living, places that will respond to future generations. I relish my interactions with clients and colleagues who bring diverse thinking to the design process. I’d still like to see women more supported in leadership positions, where influence for change can be greater.” – Jane Williams⁣⠀ ⁣. Today we celebrate our passionate and talented designers, creators, organisers, writers and leaders at JWA. #balanceforbetter #iwd2019 @internationalwomensday_global 📷@interiorlux @kristofferpaulsen⁣
