Join Parlour and SAHANZ for the first Parlour LAB for 2022. We are starting off in an optimistic mood, looking at Architecture of Celebration with Catherin Bull and Michele Lobo. See you online, 29 April.

Lab 12: Architecture of Celebration

Parlour LAB 12 explores research into places, spaces and landscapes that celebrate culture and help support inclusion and multi-cultural communities. Our speakers Catherin Bull and Michele Lobo both also work in climate activism, so the conversation with convenors Kali Marnane and Amanda Achmadi promises to be an exciting and thought-provoking conversation at the intersection of cultural celebration and climate activism.

Our speakers

Dr Catherin Bull AM is Emeritus Professor of Landscape Architecture at the University of Melbourne and Adjunct Professor at QUT. She consults through her own firm, providing services in design and project inception and review focusing on urban infrastructure and precincts. 

Recent publications include a review of Brisbane’s Fish Lane precinct in the January/February issue of Architecture Australia, another of Herston Health Quarter in February’s issue of Landscape Architecture Australia and Sydney’s Green Square Precinct in Sydney in MMXX Two Decades of Architecture in Australia (Cameron Bruhn, Thames & Hudson, 2020).

Dr Michele Lobo is a Lecturer in Geography at Deakin University, Melbourne. Her emerging research explores race, climate change and planetary justice by storying worlds across Australia as well as India. Michele braids knowledge and uses participatory visual methodologies to produce choreographies of cities as sites of encounter, difference and co-belonging.

Michele is committed to decolonising public institutions and place. Recent discussions of this work include a webinar in March 2022  and the essay “Breathing Spaces of Fearlessness and Generosity in the Anglophone/Western University”.
