Design Futures, Affordability and The Death of Luxury

14 Mar 2019

Are cities dying a slow, undignified death...? Has affluence transformed 'our city' into a mausoleum of monoculture, only accessible to the super rich? Sustainability is now a key reporting factor of the design industry. Climate change, diminishing resources and a lack of new affordable supply chains are major challenges to the design industry. This seminar will expose these limitations and present design futuring methods for an expanded ethical, political, social and professional practice in the built environment. 

  • Big cities and the death of luxury.
  • How luxury lost its lustre.
  • A plague of affluence killing communities.  
  • Wide-spectrum neighbourhoods serving the people.

What the Australian construction industry is saying about Sydney Build...

  • The Perfect Hire team and I thought the expo was fantastic. There was a great mix of people walking through looking at the exhibitions and we have gained a lot of quality leads due to this. We did not hesitate to sign up for the following year when approached to do so.
    Perfect Hire
  • This expo has 100 percent given us very goods leads we could follow up on. This is the best form of marketing we’ve done so far. We’ve been able to connect with leads that are usually very difficult to get in contact with. We’re definitely coming back next year.
    High Exposure
  • The show has a good variety of content including conference, summit and the exhibition itself. We got some quality leads as well. We will definitely come again next year.
  • I just wanted to say to you and the team, great job on an excellent event. I'd been in years before and this one was by far the best. You had great traffic. I was actually surprised. I'm definitely interested in a bigger speaking role next year and I'll likely exhibit.
    Tradie Web Guys
  • We got some quality leads. The show is managed by very nice organizers. We enjoyed the content and environment of the show a lot.
    Regupol Australia Pty Ltd
  • The show is excellent for the business. There’s lots of good quality people to do business with. This is also the best show we’ve ever been to.
