Two Minutes to Midnight: Design revisited

For those in the know, Canberra is a mecca for mid-century architecture. However, many buildings need investment and contemporary reimagining. The Civic and Cultural Precinct (located around Civic Square and the Canberra Theatre) proposes a contemporary vision yet resonates with Canberra’s design history from the 1912 Griffin plan to mid-century national capital ambitions.

Join our panel of thought leaders to explore and identify future solutions:

Provocateur: Kate Brennan, cultural planner and strategist.

Speakers: Kelvin Ho, founder of one of Australia’s finest design firms Akin Atelier and Annabelle Pegrum, architect and academic.

We honour and respect their ongoing cultural and spiritual connections to this country and the contribution they make to the life of this city and this region. We aim to respect cultural heritage, customs and beliefs of all Indigenous people.
