Let architecture in — amazing things can happen if you do | Shaun Carter | TEDxMacquarieUniversity

Let Architecture In : Amazing things can happen if you do. When you travel, do you go to cities and visit buildings? Last year nearly 9 million Australians did exactly that. Architecture can have a profound effect on the quality of our lives and how we experience life, and not just when we are on holiday. When societies, cities, people and even disaster zones let architecture in amazing things can happen.

Winner of the 2014 Emerging Architect Prize at the NSW Architecture Awards, Shaun Carter’s notable achievements and contributions to the architectural profession are considered an outstanding exemplar of a professional deserving of this prize. Established in 2004, Shaun’s practice Carterwilliamson Architects provides ongoing education, notably through inter‐office tutelage and critique.

In addition to many years of tutoring and course coordination within NSW universities, Shaun employs a dialogue of education and guidance within the studio model of his practice. Shaun is an active contributor to the evolving architectural discourse through his roles in the NSW Chapter; notably as a Chapter Councillor and Chair of the Architecture Bulletin Editorial Committee, as well as a committee member of the Gender Equity and CPD Committees. In addition, Shaun’s contributions to architectural culture expand beyond his involvement in practice and education; through his role as co‐convenor of the Inner West Architects Network, and his involvement in the curated model exhibition “Model Practice” for the 2013 Sydney Architecture Festival.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
