Conflict, Architecture and Participation

September 26, 2011

A conversation with Ammon Beyerle and Michelle Emma James from here studio on creating community and public space.

The Arena Project Space will host a conversation on Tuesday 27 September on conflict, architecture and participation.

The two guest speakers for the evening are Ammon Beyerle and Michelle Emma James from ["here studio":http://www.herestudio.net/] – an emerging, interdisciplinary office based in Melbourne that uses art, design, research and action to generate community and public space. The studio’s projects include Hub Melbourne, the collaborative working space at Donkey Wheel House, and STREAT at Melbourne Uni and Melbourne Central, a social enterprise providing homeless young people with a pathway to long-term careers in the hospitality industry.

Beyerle and James will describe how participation in architecture allows meaningful spaces and environments that are related to people to be built. They will also discuss how conflict can be a productive force in the design process.
