Event Description

The University of Queensland’s Indigenous Design Place network and School of Architecture have brought together a rare confluence of three influential Indigenous architects from three Pacific Rim nations who will discuss their ideas on contemporary Indigenous architecture.

Join us for this special conversation with Daniel Glenn (USA), Carroll Go-Sam (Australia) and Albert L Refiti (Samoa) who will each present their work or views, followed by a panel discussion with Professor Paul Memmott (UQ School of Architecture and Indigenous Design Place) and Dr Elizabeth Grant (University of Adelaide).

All speakers are contributors to the forthcoming Handbook of Contemporary Indigenous Architecture which is the first of its kind. The book will draw on expertise from around the globe to comment on state of the art Indigenous architecture, covering Indigenous architectural approaches, building types, regional variations and case studies of significant buildings designed for or by Indigenous people.

Indigenous architectural voices will be given a prominence infrequently afforded and this public talk begins the conversation on how this can be best achieved.
