This presentation by Dr Paul Toyne, Sustainability Practice Leader at Grimshaw, will explore the ingenuity and possibility of architecture as we look for intelligent strategies for sustainable future living, and to strengthen humanity’s connection with nature. Drawing upon Grimshaw’s interest for projects with minimal footprints, Paul will track how the disciplines of architecture and urban design may adapt to, and regenerate, the Earth’s systems.

With its aspirational message about the natural world, ecology and technology, this event will bring to the fore the responsibility we have to act quickly and challenge ourselves to do more to restore the health of our planet.

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
