From architecture students and architects to heritage professionals, academics and the general public — we found ourselves talking heritage matters with all kinds of communities in the last few weeks.
Starting with a paper delivered at an international symposium at the University of Melbourne, and a presentation to a Heritage Council of Victoria workshop on social significance, we also contributed teaching time at tertiary level, presented to a symposium intriguingly entitled Dubious Heritage, participated in an AIA (Victoria) discussion for architects, joined a panel on Good Design and Heritage as part of Melbourne Design Week, and delivered a paper on Glenrowan for the National Trust (Queensland).
