The Architecture of Education in Canberra and Beijing


Presented by Gerald Szeto

Date: 5:30pm – 7:30pm, 5 May 2014
Venue: The Auditorium, China in the World Building (188), Fellows Lane, ANU

The Fourth CIW Annual Lecture to be delivered by Mr Gerald Szeto preceded by a musical prologue by Guzheng artist Ms Wu Fei.

Designing major buildings in an environment of profound institutional change offers challenges to any architect with an interest in the making of practical, but also aesthetically significant (and therefore personally conducive) spaces for research, teaching, online work and public as well as policy engagement in a university.

This illustrated CIW Annual Lecture by the Beijing-based architect Gerald Szeto will discuss the design concepts and practical issues encountered during the creation of the Australian Centre on China in the World (CIW) Building, as well as in the development of his earlier design of the Stanford Center at Peking University.
