Live in the sun, walk in the shade

Frank Stanisic gave an invited lecture on collective housing to a full house of architectural design students at the UNSW Faculty of Built Environment. The design studio on living environments, coordinated by Dr Paola Favaro, has included EDO at Crown Street, Woolloomooloo as one of its precedent studies. Frank spoke about the practice’s continuing interest in site, in particular the land, sun, street and history, as a generator of site design and built form. The presentation also focused on the cross-over design in Mondrian, EDO, Spectrum, Coda and Zone to create breathing buildings with natural ventilation and solar access. These innovative projects are extensively illustrated and described in Stanisic: Live Work, available from Pesaro Press, which is on the student’s reference reading.
