Architecture as Active Living Characters

Filed under Event & Venue, News ~ by Press on  19 Aug 2019

There’s more to architecture than meets the eye.

In a free public talk, titled Architecture’s Elusive Impact on Vitality, Professor Ednie-Brown, will delve into how thinking about architecture in a new way can help create spaces that enhance well-being, creativity and cultural vitality.

Can a house be a person? Would you give your house, or workplace a name? The work of architectural theorist, Professor Pia Ednie-Brown, asks us to reconsider our relationship with the built environment beyond structures to serve human needs. She provokes people to think ecologically about architecture, and consider architecture as active, living characters within the ecology of places.

A professor with the School of Architecture and the Built Environment at the University of Newcastle, Professor Ednie-Brown has led a number of research projects and has developed her own creative research practice, Onomatopoeia.

Professor Ednie-Brown’s lecture is part of the University’s New Professors Talk – a series of public lectures featuring subject matter experts speaking on topics of community relevance.

The free lecture will be held at Newcastle Conservatorium from 6pm on Thursday 22 August. Registration is free via Eventbrite.
