EVERYTHING OLD IS NEW AGAIN: CONTEXTS, MATERIALS AND IDENTITIES

Friday 19 October, 10.30 am


c/- INTBAU Australia

Moderator: Robyn Holt.
Interior Designer Thomas Hamel and Garden Designer Paul Bangay, with Justin Hewitt of the Prince’s Trust Australia and guest Architect Michael Bell.

The past often presents our future. However, objects from the past are often disregarded in design because we don’t know how, or we find it difficult, to interpret them effectively in current design. During this discussion, Thomas and Paul will share how they effectively utilise objects from the past in stunning homes that will stand the test of time.

INTBAU is the International Network of Traditional Building Architecture and Urbanism. It is a global educational charity, which also works under the patronage of its founder H.R.H The Prince of Wales with over 30 national chapters across the globe. This seminar, ‘Everything Old is New Again: Contexts, Materials and Identities’, will also be a key topic of focus at the INTBAU World Congress in London in November this year.

THE ART OF SEEING; A DISCUSSION ON DESIGN AESTHETICS

FRIDAY 19 OCTOBER, 3.30 pm


Nina Campbell, Justin Bishop, Melissa Balzan, Lauren Li.

The term “aesthetic” stems from the Greek word “aisthetikos,” meaning “of sense perception,” and is related to the study of sensory values. In design, aesthetics refers to the visual attractiveness of a space and designers need to understand these aspects in order to match them with the appropriate design. During this seminar, the panel will explore today’s shifting interior landscape, discussing whether design is now driven less by fashion, and more by the desire for a curated narrative that reflects who we are. Or is individualism itself simply a trend by another name?

A book signing with Nina Campbell will follow this seminar.
