Architects for Peace

Architects for Peace is inviting professionals of the built environment and members of related organisations and their representatives to be part of one-day workshop called "under-construction".

The workshop will address the topic of reconstruction from both a practical and theoretical point of view. The "under-construction workshop"will draw on case studies and discussions to identify ways in which we can engage with other communities or nations, while minimising detrimental effects.

At this point we have secured the participation of Rob Stent (president of Victoria RAIA), Nadine Samaha who will talk about reconstruction in Beirut, Rochelle Woodley-Baker from RWB & Associates - Social Planners (Adelaide), OXFAM Community Aid Abroad among many others.

The Under-Construction workshop promises to be an exciting event that will include a performances by RMIT Public Art students and VCA, short films, visual art and music by various artists.
