Design revisited: architect Michael Dysart | DESIGN Canberra 2020

Festivals and Celebrations

18 Nov 2020 Once Only Event

DESIGN Canberra’s new Design Revisited series is a unique opportunity to celebrate design history, design education and design excellence in a city of design.

This Design Revisited event, held at the iconic Shine Dome, celebrates the work of architect Michael Dysart.

Michael Dysart is an important architect of the second half of the twentieth century in Australia and a leading practitioner of the late twentieth century Sydney regional style of architecture. Dysart’s most important works in Canberra are Urambi Village (1974) and Wybalena Grove (1974).

In this DESIGN Canberra keynote talk, Dysart will reflect on these rare communal and co-operative approaches to medium density housing development – lessons learned, what he’d do differently, and the journey to realise their ambitious vision.

To support Dysart’s talk, DESIGN Canberra has commissioned comedian and design nerd Tim Ross to produce a short documentary-style film interview with Michael Dysart which will premiere at this special event.

Dysart’s keynote talk is a unique opportunity to understand Canberra’s architectural and cultural history, and inform the development of contemporary co-housing projects.

Doors open at 5:30pm for a 6pm start. Please allow time to register when you arrive.
