Architectural Review Asia Pacific is delighted to announce a new initiative allowing young professionals to become contributing online editorial assistants for Australian Design Review. It is a unique opportunity for all involved and we’re excited at the prospect of reading what they have to say.
Coming from various locations, backgrounds and positions in the discipline, their articles will test theories, review projects, view exhibitions/events, provide researched content, and much, much more. Some have research interests in certain areas, expertise in others, or are simply driven by curiosity and intrigue.
We hope that channeling each of these aspects will provide ADR with some fascinating content. The first article will be posted online through our Opinion page on March 3, 2014.
So here is the new team (in no particular order):
Michael Parsons is based on the Gold Coast and is a recent graduate from Bond University; with key interests in digital fabrication and computational design and ‘their potential to empower and enable the Architect in the design process’.
