Architecture on Show: the architect and builder relationship

Event Description

This presentation will explore the relationship between architect and builder, focusing on the unique circumstances that occur when the builder on a project is also a practising architect. Whether it is a small extension to a home or a public library used by thousands of people, the dynamic between an architect and architect-builder can play a critical role in the project’s success.

Individually both architect and builder bring their own sensibilities, training and perspectives to the process. What changes when the line between architect and builder is blurred and the role of architect-builder brings a unique set of expertise to the working process? How does this dynamic relationship challenge traditional working models in the construction industry and how does this benefit the successful completion of client outcomes?

Join architect-builder Angel Roumeliotis and architect Will Fung as they discuss their working relationship based on a long standing friendship and how they have successfully worked together to complete the Darlinghurst Rooftop Building.

Free but booking advised.
