This edition of The Architecture Symposium will explore the theme of the 2022 Asia Pacific Architecture Festival: “Co-operate, co-design, co-exist.”

Presented by Architecture Media as part of the Design Speaks series, the symposium looks beyond Australian shores to the broader Asia Pacific region. We consider how architects and designers can leverage the myriad opportunities of working collectively – with other built environment professionals as well as with those working outside the industry.

Held at the Brisbane Powerhouse on Friday 18 March, the program includes nine speakers from the Asia Pacific region and will conclude with closing drinks on the River Deck. 

Please note, tickets are limited. If public gatherings are restricted, the event will be delivered virtually, with ticket prices reduced by $100 per person.
