Looking back, it's easy to see a connective thread, the mix of efforts and experiences that have brought me here today. This presentation traces back through 20 years of creative work, conceived within the space of numerous disciplines, and made with a wide range of mediums. Each project, however different, all share a belief that even in unexpected places, with the most modest means, there is something special to be made.

Becoming a Citizen Architect
BY JEN STRINGER
@ ARCHEX PECHAKUCHA SESSION
ON NOV 07, 2013
When you're an architect you meet a lot of people who say, "I always wanted to be an architect." Jen Stringer said that and she made it so, through inspiration, disillusion, perserverance, world setbacks, and life's other surprises. The subtitle to her presentation is "my journey into a place I never knew I always wanted to be." It's a good place. We should all be so lucky.
Emory Place Block Party
BY WHITNEY MANAHAN
@ VOL 16
ON AUG 06, 2015
As an architect I'm a proponent for saving historic buildings and I constantly see potential in unique and underutilized spaces. There are areas of town which may have both but sometimes need that "something more." After living near Emory Place for 3 years I decided the "something more" it needed was a stronger connection and community and more activity in general. This isn't an issue that is solved by renovations alone. This is where a group of like-minded people came together to make that "something more" a reality. This is how the Emory Place Block Party came to be.

UWA IQX Space - Architecture & Design
BY JORDAN-ALICE FYFE
@ VOL 25
ON AUG 22, 2019
Lee Syminton - Architect
Lee talks about the project of UWA IQX space. An innovative co-working space where we hosted Vol.25 PechaKucha Perth.
The Masonic Hall in Nedlands is owned by the University of Western Australia. The hall is refurnished to house UWA’s Innovation Quarter Exchange, Offices, meeting hall and boardroom. The project was won under a competition run by the University. The building is of heritage significance and has been designed with minimal impact on the original fabric. The project includes a new lift shaft to allow disabled access to the second floor, the renovation of the original masonic temple into a co-working space. Careful design and work with the State Heritage office have resulted in an exciting fresh and respectful project.
