|Timber talks in March|
|Thursday, 15 March 2012 00:00|
Timothy Moon of Timothy Moon Architects will present on his Escarpment House, the winner of the 2011 Residential Class One Award. Escarpment House comprises a series of robust linked timber and stone pavilions on the edge of an escarpment above the Hawkesbury River. Clinton Murray, Practice Leader of Architecture and Interiors with SKM-S2F, will discuss AIIM Processing and Devices Building, the winner of the 2011 People's Choice award. This delicate building houses the University of Wollongong Microscopy Unit. It uses timber structurally and decoratively to prevent interference with the microscopes within.
The talk starts at 6:30 PM on Tuesday, March 20, at AIA NSW Tuscalam House. It will be introduced by Stephen Mitchell of WoodSolutions.
In late March, Geoff Broughton, Adjunct Associate Professor at Curtin University and Director TimberED Services, will deliver a 2 hour CPD Seminar “Timber Design, Detailing and Durability” in all capital cities and Newcastle.
