Melbourne-based architect Stuart Harrison will give a public lecture at The University of Sydney on Thursday 29 September, examining the act of promoting architecture.

As an architect and communicator, Harrison will discuss the different means of promoting architecture, as well as making it in the marginalised contexts of everyday places.
Radio, TV, magazines, books.
Pavilions, houses, arcades, rooms.
What are the tools of the contemporary architect?
Are we advocates or activists?
Acceptance or resistance?
