How do Oceanic conceptions of space influence architecture, urbanism and culture? How do flows of ideas, materials, finance and technologies shape Pacific built environments? How is the Pacific diaspora investigating and investing in Pacific futures?  

Join Karamia Müller and Charmaine ‘Ilaiū Talei for a lively discussion of Pacific architecture, urbanism and Oceanic spatial concepts. Dr Karamia Müller is a Pacific scholar and feminist. A lecturer at the University of Auckland, her research focuses on the Indigenization of design methodologies with a focus on Pacific spatialities for Pacific diaspora. Dr Charmaine ‘Ilaiū Talei is passionate about Pacific architecture – its research, design and related practice. She is discipline lead for Kramer Ausenco’s regional offices in Australia and the South West Pacific Islands.

This event is a partnership between Parlour and The University of Queensland. Hosted by Brickworks, it is supported by Melbourne Design Week and AWS.
