This month, in conjunction with Right Angle Studio and as part of the Sydney Architecture Festival, Insight considers the role of architects and an army of data scientists, placemakers, urban planners, sustainability experts and policy makers to keep our cities connected, considered, and liveable.
Helping us to understand the role of design, planning and good policy in managing the ebbs and flows of a city in flux are our panel guests:
Ben Green, Director, Tzannes: Ben’s experience in urban and integrated design in Sydney has encompassed sustainable and enduring architecture across all scales and project types. For Tzannes he has designed and managed the Royal Apartments in Newcastle and Cranbrook School in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs, among many other projects.
Kim Crestani, Director, Order Architects/City Architect, Parramatta City Council: A member of the Urban Design Review Panels for the NSW SICEEP (Sydney International Convention, Exhibition and Entertainment Precinct), Westconnex and Sydney Metro City & Southwest projects, Kim founded the multi-award-winning Order Architects almost immediately after graduating 30 years ago.
Bruce Taper, Director, Kinesis: With 20 years’ experience in sustainability and planning, the former director of Sustainability and Metropolitan Planning for the NSW Department of Planning founded Kinesis in 2007 and has since delivered the groundbreaking PRECINX rating tool for Landcom and the Decentralised Energy Master Plan for the City of Sydney.
Insight with be co-moderated by regular host Naomi Tosic, co-founder of The Office Space, and Barrie Barton, Director of Right Angle Studio and the Paramount Recreation Club.
Barrie Barton is a lawyer by qualification, an entrepreneur by nature and a passionate urbanist who has spent most of his adult life thinking about the relationship between where we live and the sorts of people we become.
