Join Professor Richard Goodwin as he discusses his display, Porosity, which seeks to redefine public space in the city. Through his Australian Research Council fundedgroundbreaking research, artist/architect Goodwin speculates about the three-dimensionalising of public space in the city and its impact on the transformation of existing buildings.
A new science for redefining urban planning is developed via his Porosity Index and its ability to measure the degree to which buildings can be penetrated in the age of ‘terror’. Richard will be joined by curator of the Homes in the sky exhibition, Caroline Butler-Bowdon, who will moderate a critique of the Porosity project by Helen Lochhead, Assistant Government Architect, and Chris Johnson, Executive Director, Cities and Centres for the Department of Planning.
