Professor Gerard Reinmuth was guest speaker - alongside Kathlyn Loseby (COO Crone Architects) and Professor Susan Savage, (Director of Learning Futures at QUT) to discuss accreditation standards and processes for architecture schools in Australia.
Hosted by the Architects Registration Board of NSW, the event was timed to coincide with the recent review of the Architecture Program Accreditation Procedure in Australia and the context for architectural education in Australia which is in a period of great flux. This year the Higher Education Standards Framework comes into effect, there are new Architects Regulations for NSW and an entirely new program for architecture is even on the horizon. In this dynamic environment, it is increasingly important to actively nurture open discussions between the stakeholders of accreditation, and feed that intelligence back to the wider community.
The event was hosted by the University of Technology Sydney.
