Every new building is made up of lots of products that someone chose throughout the design process.

To get a building built there needs to be a contract between the builder and client. Novation contracts are a new model of contract that some architects say may impact build quality. Others say when these risks are managed correctly, there’s less to worry about than first thought. In this episode of Hearing Architecture, we’re talking to Nick Loren…

Becoming an architect takes a long time. In Australia, a student has to spend a minimum of 5 years at university in order to get an architecture degree. During this time, students learn about the design process, the history and theories that have shaped the profession, and practical building techniques. After graduation, it still takes at least 2 y…
 
One of the things that makes Australia great is our richness of diversity. There are people from so many cultural backgrounds, language groups, and belief systems, which influences the way they want to live and shape their buildings. Allowing for these differences in the architecture process can raise some interesting opportunities. When an archite…
 
In 1980 the median house price in Melbourne was $40,800. Fast forward to 2016 and the median price of a house was $713,000. With property prices rising across the country, the concept of the Australian Dreamhouse on its own block with a front and back yard is becoming more like a fantasy. This was in part because median income didn’t have the same …
 
Most Australians live in cities. The 2016 census showed that 71% of Australian’s live in major cities, and only 10% of Australians live in towns with less than 10,000 people. With this gap on the rise, it’s important that the small communities around the country are not forgotten while large cities continue to grow. In order for small towns to func…
 
The beginning of an architecture project usually starts with some form of communication. It can be a conversation over a coffee, through an email from a client listing a dozen items that they “must have”, or standing in an old building with a bunch of people describing what they can see in their head while they gesticulate in the direction of where…
 
Before any architecture project starts, there needs to be a client who has the vision to build something. Once they’ve committed to build, they’ll need some specialists to work through all of the mandatory building requirements. In Australia, these include the local planning scheme, national construction code, and some specific design guidelines. S…
 
Australians love to renovate their homes. You can tell we do because there are so many DIY TV programs that show us how to give it a go. But when you watch programs like Grand Designs, The Block, or House Rules there’s rarely an architect to be seen. With many programs like this out there a lot of people might assume that design, renovation, and bu…
 
In 2017 the Australian Institute of Architects awarded Melbourne based Architect Peter Elliot with the Gold Medal, which is the Institutes highest honour.

When you start to look for it, architecture is everywhere and it’s the stage on which we play out our lives. It doesn’t matter whether we’re working in it, living in it, or resting in it, it’s part of our lives and memories.

Architecture is all around us, almost all of the time. But with so many buildings around us, why don't we know more about how they're designed and what goes into the design of these buildings?
