Watch Architecture of Celebration with Catherin Bull and Michele Lobo. You can purchase access to the CPD below.

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 Rebecca McLaughlan is a 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. 

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”.
