Richard Rogers to give presentation for AIA Sydney
On Monday, September 20 2010, Richard Rogers of international architectural practice Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners will talk at Sydney University to an audience of AIA architects. The presentation, entitled ‘Architecture and the Compact City’ will look at ideas shaping the development of compact, multi-centred cities as the most environmentally sustainable form of urban development for future generations.
Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners has considerable experience of undertaking major masterplanning projects in cities across the world including London, Paris, Berlin, Shanghai and New York.
The talk will consider approaches to masterplanning and the implementation of schemes which seek to use derelict land, discourage the use of cars in favour of walking and public transport, and create communities shaped by environmental responsibility, accessibility and the overlapping of activities in a flexible and socially inclusive framework.
Richard will also look at the design of buildings and focus on some of the projects which the practice has delivered over nearly 50 years, from the Pompidou Centre in Paris and Lloyd’s of London to the National Assembly for Wales in Cardiff and Terminal 4 Barajas Airport in Madrid. In addition, he will discuss some of the practice’s current projects.
Tickets are available to AIA members via AIA Sydney
