The Architecture Drilldown

The Architecture Drilldown – a newsletter that keeps you up-to-date while saving time. Architecture journalist and editor Rachael Bernstone scans all the news that’s fit to print about architecture and serves you up the best bits, weekly. Enjoy!

So, what’s of international interest this week?
Right-o, what’s happening on the national / federal front?
Apparently, New Australian homes are the smallest they’ve been in 22 years. But hold your horses, apartments are skewing the figures downwards.
Architect and natural-born-leader Michael Lewarne argues that the profession’s major issues stem from culture and leadership problems (and an over-reliance on jargon and hubris!)
The Everybody’s Home campaign is urging people to email MPs about a National Housing Strategy. I’ve done mine, can you send one too?
Drilling down further – what’s news across the states?
In Sydney
On to Melbourne
Up to Brisbane
And over to Perth
What upcoming events should go in the diary?
In Europe, Nine Australian projects have been shortlisted at the Inside World Festival of Interiors Awards, to be announced next week in Amsterdam.
Back home, the 2018 National Emerging Architecture prize winner Christina Cho is currently touring the country on a speaking tour. Not to be confused with the other 2018 National Emerging Architecture prize winner Monique Woodward, who will tour next year. Confused? Me too!
For next year’s diary: Architecture’s annual reunion, the National Architecture Conference, will take place in Melbourne on June 21 and 22.
What about grants and funding announcements?
Architecture patrons the Droga family announces $50,000 Indigenous architecture student scholarships at UTS
Must see movies?
Who are this week's movers and shakers?
HOUSES Editor Katelin Butler is Architecture Media’s new editorial director
Armchair (or actual?) travel…
Quick trip to NYC (we were there this time last year, sob). The Met Selects wHY Architecture to Renovate Rockefeller Wing
Inspiration or Archi-porn? You decide…
Who didn’t want to live in a castle when they were a kid? I know I had dreams of towers and moats, so I enjoyed Watching Six Ruined British Castles Come Back to Life
Sounds Like Design’s Marketing and Communications tip of the week…
Not so much a tip as a call to arms. Peter Raisbeck says: “The time of the traditional practice is over.” Well worth a read.
