E@H_Andrew Leach.jpgU bent van harte uitgenodigd op de online lezing van Andrew Leach op donderdag 3 december, 20 u.
De lezing is de tweede in de reeks EXCURSIONS@HOME waarin onderzoekers, architecten en kunstenaars ons mee op reis nemen. In navolging van de 18de eeuwe schrijver Xavier à De Maistre, maar dan ondersteund door de nieuwste mogelijkheden van digitale communicatie, reizen we samen, elk vanuit onze huiskamer, naar pleinen of plekken die hen hebben geraakt en die ze met ons willen delen.

De livestream van deze lezing kan u volgen via onderstaande “Teams Live” link:

Gold Coast - 28°0' S 153°23' E


The Gold Coast is Australia's most rapidly changing city – regularly compared to Miami and Las Vegas for its embrace of bad taste and the good life; and with Dubai for its sudden moments of high-rise assuredness and seeming lack of restraint in either the ambitions of building or their manifestations. This excursion will focus on the contemporary city and the conditions that have given rise to its character - high rise, bad taste and skewed towards the beach edge.

Andrew Leach is Professor of Architecture at the University of Sydney, where he is Associate Dean (Research) in the Sydney School of Architecture, Design and Planning. He writes on contemporary issues in the fields of architectural history, theory and criticism.
