Head down to Southbank for the latest instalment of ACCA‘s ongoing Cities of Architecture series, running March to October. This coming Monday, James Brearley, partner of Brearley Architects & Urbanists (BAU) will guide us through the recent architectural, urban and cultural fabric of one of Asia’s most economically and architecturally vibrant cities.
Cities of Architecture brings together leading architects, designers and academics to discuss some of the world’s most fascinating and complex cities through the lens of urban history, culture and the built environment. Arrive from 5pm to enjoy a complimentary Shanghai-inspired cocktail created by the Melbourne Gin Company and Starward Whisky. The talk kicks-off at 6pm.
