Enrico Taglietti’s contribution to architecture is significant: his thoughtful detailing, aesthetics and sense of place have helped to shape Australia’s national capital, home to the most ambitious and most successful example of twentieth century urban planning in Australia.
This highly anticipated symposium is an opportunity to consolidate research and knowledge to assess the significance of Taglietti’s work and better understand its value for the future. Symposium speakers include international and national architects and designers, architectural historians and scholars, and some of the many people who have been touched by Taglietti’s designs – school children, designer-makers, home owners and more.
The symposium is part of a series of dedicated festival events which will feature the work, poetics, personal style and contribution of Taglietti (now aged 92), as part of the DESIGN Canberra festival. Now in its fifth year, DESIGN Canberra is a festival with a regional and global focus which is a critical and collaborative forum for contemporary, relevant, experimental and authentic design.
