Architects thinking locally acting globally.

This international 'immersion' located in the lush and picturesque Wicklow Mountains was a studio based design 'charette', undertaken by small groups, for a project on a site within walking distance of the base venue. Themes include the exploration of architectural strategies that can moderate between the permeation of the external envelope in Australian architecture and how this might confront harsh European climates and locations. The design program was be supported by talks from the 'masters' and on-going tutorial support during the week. All the 'masters' stayed with the participants at the Glencree Reconciliation Centre. The program culminated in presentations and crits on the last Friday.
