AIA Foundation presents Nick Wood and Sibling in conversation
Fri 16 Oct 2015, 6.00pm
What happens when designers get together for show-and-tell? How alike—or at odds—are their approaches to similar projects? Join us as Nick Wood, founder and director of London-based How About Studio and the Australian Institute of Architect’s first Droga Architect in Residence for 2015/16, chats with Melbourne design collective Sibling (represented this evening by architects Amelia Borg, Nicholas Braun and Jane Caught) about the similarities and differences across both studios’ experiential, playful and socially engaged work.
The (informal) panel, presented by the AIA Foundation, will look at highlight projects from both practices—from Sibling’s interior design for Vice Australia’s Melbourne headquarters to How About Studio’s Flotsam installation at Selfridges Ultra-Lounge—to trace overlapping themes, and also exchange ideas. We’ll clap our eyes on the feature projects too, via leaflets and our smartphones, before getting the chance to ask any pertinent questions. After the conversation, the creativity continues to flow (along with the beer, gin and whisky) at our first Friday night, post-work DJ session with DJ Kings.
