In partnership with the Australian Institute of Architects’ Emerging Architects and Graduates Network and Open House Melbourne, EmAGN THIS! is a program exploring selected architectural projects in construction.
Through guided site visits and in conversation with the architects, builders and clients involved in each project, the event seeks to provide a platform for discourse on the complexities within the design and building industry while shedding light on how it has adapted and evolved over time. What were the narratives uncovered? Were there any unexpected and welcoming surprises?
Lang House – Austin Maynard Architects
Designed by Austin Maynard Architects and built by Dimpat Construction, Lang House is a bright, airy and lush inner-city sanctum, that responds to the owners’ desire for a "wellness-enhancing home that is architectural and inspirational".
Built from equitone and steel, the external structure is a striking, contrasting backdrop to the green landscape, while internally spaces are softened with natural timber and tonal materials. The project began sketch design in late 2019 and is due to be completed in October this year.
Experience architecture before it is fully realised with an architect-led guided site visit. Gain a greater understanding of the intricacies within the design and building process, and provide an educational opportunity for emerging architects, graduates, students and of course, architecture enthusiasts.
EmAGN THIS! is also running a tour of Artistry Collective with Aych Architects, 10am Saturday 30 July.
