2018 Contemporary Australian Architects Speaker Series
Wednesday 12 September 2018
The Sydney-based practice Welsh + Major seek an artistic resolution of programme and detail with a focus on context and landscape, memory and material. Their work has been recognised with several awards for design excellence from the Australian Institute of Architects, which include the Small Projects Award in the 2008 Greenway Award for Heritage Architecture in 2009 and the BDP Sustainability Award. David Welsh has tutored at The University of Sydney and the University of New South Wales, and run Masters Studios in environmental sustainability and material technologies at the University of Technology, Sydney. Welsh + Major’s portfolio of work spans across public spaces and private homes, restaurants and bars, galleries and shops, workplaces, and the reinvention of historic buildings.
