TERROIR Directors Scott Balmforth and Richard Blythe speak at the 2009 Australia New Zealand Student Architecture Congress ‘RE:HAB’ Held at the University of Canberra.
TERROIR's lecture was titled ‘RE:PLACE’ and discussed the creation of ‘place’ within the urban landscape - responding to and enhancing the cultural and physical qualities of site.
Richard and Scott presented selected TERROIR projects via 4 key themes of; Politics, Cosmpolitan, Ethics and Parallax. And yes, the image accompnaying this article does in fact show an image of Mr Potato-head, harnessed in a line of argument by Richard Blythe to explain our cosmopolitan condition.
