2018 Contemporary Australian Architects Speaker Series
Wednesday 26 September 2018
WOHA incorporate sustainable design strategies as a response to climate change and widespread urbanization and their unique approach to tropical architecture and urbanism, sees landscape and community space woven through porous structures. Their extensive use of natural vegetation as a building element makes them extraordinary. In addition to architectural practice, both Hassell and Wong have lectured at universities around the world. In March 2016, the ‘Garden City Mega City’ exhibition opened at the Skyscraper Museum, New York, and the immersive video installation ‘Fragments of an Urban Future’ – featuring three WOHA buildings – was launched at the Venice Biennale in May 2016.
