Australia’s largest trade show for the architecture and interior design industry is set to kick off next week in Melbourne, boasting three days of design celebration from 30 May–1 June. As well as the trade show platform featuring the latest in furniture, textiles, lighting, appliances and surfaces, plus independently curated features, designEX this year includes a seminar series entitled ‘The Business of Design‘.
Day One of the seminar series sees industrial designer Michael Young speaking about his experience working and manufacturing in China and City Lab director Andrew Mackenzie and a panel of guests discussing the risks and rewards of architectural competitions in Australia. Day Two sees McBride Charles Ryan principal Debbie Ryan discuss their Cloud House and other projects (this talk runs on the Friday and Saturday), while Phooey director Emma Young discusses re-use and adaptation. Friday’s program also sees a number of student sessions, including the founders of Motherbird talking about how to start a creative studio. Day Three includes an ‘Unbuilt’ event where a number of designers and architects will examine unbuilt architecture and the use of technology to suggest new ways of experiencing architecture and design through the use of Augmented Reality and animation, among others.
