How do we navigate the changing role of the architect in contemporary practice, while continuing to achieve quality outcomes for the built environment?


Chaired by Kim Irons, a seminar run by the Victorian Chapter of the Australian Institute of Architects will provide perspectives on the future of practice from  established and emerging architects. Panellists will discuss the topic in the context of the evolution and structure of their respective practices and with reference to collaboration, competitions and consideration of methods of procurement.
