Affirmative Architecture invites architects and designers to examine the growing demand for contemporary architecture that fundamentally contributes to society and improves our quality of life. The event is held annually with a main symposium of curated discussions, along with a range of related activities including interactive lectures and panel discussions.

Attendees will include local and international architecture luminaries, who have used their practice to explore architectural solutions to global concerns of health and community engagement. Guest speakers will provide their insight on built environments that shelter as well as nurture their inhabitants, and the pursuit of sensitive and innovative architecture with a social conscience.

This year, with Dean of Architecture at University of Queensland, Professor Sandra Kaji-O’Grady, Chris Knapp (Architecture Program Leader at Bond University) and Professor Martyn Hook of RMIT University, three major Australian university architecture faculties will converge to host Affirmative Architecture Brisbane at the celebrated Translational Research Institute by BVN Donovan Hill and Wilson Architects.

Among the international speakers are architect Kevin Low of Small Projects (Kuala Lumpur) and architects from Flores Prats (Barcelona), with local architect speakers from Charles Wright Architects, Wilson Architects and Owen and Vokes and Peters.
