The Live+Smart Research Laboratory at the School of Architecture & Built Environment, Deakin University invites you to join this free online masterclass.
The event includes a public lecture by Associate Professor Dr Phillip B. Roös, followed by keynote presentations and a panel discussion including Jefa Greenaway (Greenaway Architects), Nick Griffin (McGregor Coxall) and Eduard Ross (Grimshaw). Presentations and panel discussions include how biophilic design can be applied to community facilities at an early stage of the planning and design process. The case study of the new Hobsons Bay Wetland Centre will be used as an exemplar of integral design and planning. ‘Biophilia and Deep Connections to Place’ will review Indigenous Design, Landscape Design and Architectural Design that supports our innate affiliation to the natural world and the land.
Moderated by Deakin Scholar Lana Van Galen, the panel discussions highlight how co-design between the Hobsons Bay City Council, the Hobsons Bay Wetland Centre Committee and key stakeholders from the initiation stage of the project can result in a ‘Design that Matters’.
Date: Thursday, 9th December 2021 Time: 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM AEDT

An INHAF Habitat Forum Webinar Series – Rethinking Cities
In the last few years, surprising new developments in neuroscience, environmental psychology, biology, mathematics, and other fields have begun to challenge designers to think differently about their role, particularly as we seek to transition to a world of healthier and more resilient environments. Science reveals the essential geometrical and sensorial qualities that create spaces promoting healing and life. Diagnostic tools such as eye-tracking and Visual Simulation Software also show that many pieces of the built environment are either invisible to the unconscious, or they create anxiety. Leading researchers and authors will discuss many of these findings, and their sometimes provocative implications.
In this webinar Dr Phillip Roös, Associate Professor and Director of the Live+Smart Research Laboratory, will discuss the urgent need for a radical intervention in our design and planning discourse by adopting a new pattern language that is embedded in the regenerative-adaptive processes of Nature.
Date: Thursday, 11 Nov, 6:30-8:30pm (IST) / 8:00-10:00am (ET) / Friday, 12 Nov, 12:00-2:30am (AEDT)
