To celebrate World Environment Day, Prospect Local Environment Group invites the general public to a free talk by South Australia innovators -
§ Sustainable Design - What is the new housing typology?
From SUHO (a nationally recognised provider of ecologically sustainable design (ESD) services and energy efficiency assessments and for commercial and residential buildings).
Jessica Allen and Géraldine Petit will talk on:
Jessica Allen is a Building Designer by trade but rather than focus on the aesthetics of a building, prefers to focus on how buildings work. She believes we don't have to wait for code changes or improved regulations to implement better building strategies.
Géraldine Petit Studied with environmental passion under the supervision of multiple renowned architects in Paris and in Lausanne (Switzerland) obtaining a Master of Art in Architecture. Her technical knowledge has directed cleaner and healthier construction processes, passive energy use and creating an encompassing shelter for humans to live in harmony with the environment.
§ Houses or Homes, Suburbs or Communities?
David Bailey will speak on how to make more inclusive suburbs, including through how different housing is designed and managed. David will draw on research and practical experience to outline what makes for increased inclusion, and the impact economically and socially.
David is a town planner with a strong interest in people and communities. David is employed at the City of Adelaide and is also a sessional lecturer at the University of South Australia and sits on the City of Holdfast Bay Council Assessment Panel.
Talks will allow time for discussion and networking.
