In considering the future of housing in Australia, we must also look to the past. Our suburban city structures, generators of sprawl, but beloved for the promise of garden – how might we rethink them? What qualities to retain, what needs to change to help our cities adapt to the housing affordability and climate crisis we face. How do we deal with an ageing population and shifting demographic character of the country? In this session, we will examine typical suburban subdivisions that have been revisited by their architects to provide additional housing density, and the challenges this presents.

Presentations are followed by a panel discussion chaired by curators Andrew Burns, Andrew Burns Architecture, and Hannah Tribe, Tribe Studio Architects.
