So, what does that actually mean?

Forgive the fluff! Here’s five topics that we think might provoke some further thought:
- We will explore how changes to the social architecture of our communities are affecting the way we live and interact with others through the built environment. International keynote, Young Australian of the Year nominee, facilitator and social entrepreneur Al Jeffrey (Base Commons) will share his work on community, innovation, wellness and sustainability by exploring the future of co-living, a model of ‘curated’ shared housing.

Warren McGregor, CEO of PrefabAUS will moderate a panel discussion with some of the nation’s leading innovators in construction to discuss how prefabrication, automation, artificial intelligence, 3D printing and virtual reality are changing the way we build the cities of the future.

 Award-winning architect and recipient of the David Lindner Research Prize, Natalia Krysiak (Hayball) will explore the gap between the planning of our cities and those who occupy those spaces. Krysiak will explore the potential for high-density areas to provide environments for increased play and the independent mobility of children.

The Dutch-born eco-warrior, artist and inspiration behind Melbourne’s Greenhouse will showcase his revolutionary work into edible architecture, urban food production and zero-waste buildings.

After teaming up with friends to develop a project, Tim Riley from Property Collective created a new development model that brings people together through working collectives, providing affordable housing and an alternative way to own great homes in great locations.

Proudly brought to life by The Urban Developer, in partnership with Queensland Government and Brisbane Development Association, Urbanity 2017 is a two-day conference held at Brisbane’s Royal International Convention Centre 28 - 29 September 2017.

Ticket registrations are open. Be quick to ensure you don’t miss out.
