PARLOUR: a space to speak – bringing together research, informed opinion and resources; generating debate and discussion; expanding the spaces for women in Australian architecture.
Parlour Reading Room

Welcome to the Parlour Reading Room, our take on the book club. We invite the Parlour community to organise their own groups, with colleagues and friends.

 

Each month, we provide suggested materials to read, listen to and watch and facilitation guides to prompt discussion. Then it’s up to you to get together and discuss! On the last Thursday of the month, everyone is invited to an online Q&A session to discuss the theme and materials with the Parlour Reading Room community and two experts.
