Concepts [#2]

Monday Night Talks | Tuesday 12 June 2012 @ 6pm

Design ideas by diagram – 10 concepts for restaurants and bars.

Taking the spirit of Christopher Alexander’s Pattern Language, Concepts [#2] asks three Melbourne architects to present 10 design principles with 10 slides in 10 minutes.

This is an opportunity to talk about design ideas and provide them in a way that others can use and share. This seminar hopes to become a platform for architects to build a collective design knowledge.

The host of Concepts will be Andrew Maynard.

The Presenters

  • Fiona Drago - Fiona Drago Architect

  • Adam Dettrick - Adam Dettrick Architect

  • Linda Valentic - Breathe Architecture

The rules

  • Each architect has only 10 slides
  • The presenters have only one minute per slide. A bell will ring and the presenter must move onto the next slide.
  • Slides must be diagrams or sketches, preferably black and white.
  • A Q+A session with all three presenters will follow the slides
  • All diagrams have to be provided for a possible publication (No promises, but wouldn’t it be great to have a little book of Melbourne design ideas?)
