People and Places
Two Master Classes from the 'People and Places' series were hosted in Melbourne and Adelaide. Participants and speakers from NSW, SA, NT, Victoria, WA and New Zealand had opportunity to focus views, sharing and learning on the built form and social and economic development. The events included virtual and real tours of local and international projects giving participants the opportunity to see firsthand some of the interesting work underway and communicate with the project leaders. And now it is time for Sydney to share its stories.
The 'People and Places' Master Class in Sydney will be held on 5-6 June 2013. Please, see updated on AHI Professional Development Portal
