This year’s Architecture Week keynote speaker is Stuart Harrison, an Australian architect and widely published writer on design, architecture and urbanism. Stuart is a director of the award-winning Melbourne architecture firm Harrison and White (HAW) and a member of SLASH Projects, which recently won a design competition for a site at the Royal Adelaide Hospital. Stuart’s work ranges across residential, educational, recreational, institutional and commercial architecture, as well as master planning and urban design. Across his career, he has developed significant expertise in ways of adapting existing buildings to new uses. He consults across Australia on design review and project formation, has taught at RMIT and Monash University, was co-founder and host of ‘The Architects’ (as seen left) on Melbourne’s 3RRR Radio, and is the author of two very good books on housing, ‘Forty-six Square Metres Doesn’t Normally Become a House’, an investigation of the potential of smaller housing typologies, and ‘New Suburban’, which examined the suburban type and ideal in Australian and New Zealand housing.
