What are the burning questions about living in design today? We seek to explore some of these in the LiveLive series of Design Hunter Conversations at Melbourne Indesign in August. The talks will take part as panel discussions led by the Habitus team and involving industry members who will offer their insight, experience and opinion on these topics.
We look at Heritage and Australian Identity as expressed through the architecture of the suburbs, asking the questions: what kind of architecture and design is worth protecting? How is an architectural identity forged and how (and when) shoud it change?
Disrupting Design Living looks at the idea of communal living – how is it defined and how can it work? The social and psychological benefits are weighed up against the practical, logistical and financial considerations.
Finally, lighting is the subtle, yet powerful element of space. As consumers and home-owners become more educated about design and architecture, attention to how our living spaces are lit will become more important. What is a good balance between natural and artificial lighting sources? What environmental concerns are we responsible for?
You can dive into a lively discussion on these topics with us during Melbourne Indesign. The three events will take place across Melbourne on Friday the 12th of August.
