Affordability and its Implications for Housing Supply

Faculty of Architecture
All welcome

Geoff Meen; Professor of Applied Economics at the University of Reading (UK) Seminar: Housing affordability is being recognised as a major issue in local and regional areas across Australia, with many people unable to purchase or rent homes in the areas they choose. Local communities in most areas of NSW are experiencing shortages of suitable accommodation, brought about by a serious deterioration in the stock of affordable housing. Professor Meen is an economist who specialises in analyses of housing markets from the national to the regional and local levels. In 2004/05, he was commissioned by the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister (ODPM, UK) to lead a team of researchers to develop a methodology for determining regional housing targets, with a focus on affordability. Before joining The University of Reading, Professor Meen was an Economic Adviser at HM Treasury and the Department of the Environment. He had a spell as a Research Fellow at the University of Melbourne in the early eighties.

 Student's round-table talks centre on design By Catherine Naylor
Plans to build an institution aimed at improving government decision-making have been given a helping hand by university students who have come up with ideas for its design.
The Centre for Dialogue Project was conceived in 2001 when director Peter Hancock visited a similar centre in Vancouver, Canada, to take part in an international summit on mining.
“I saw how much better they were at making progress than we were. I walked in and I was gobsmacked.”
Once built, the centre will provide a venue for business, government and community groups to meet and discuss difficult and complex issues of the day in a neutral, non-threatening, “round-table” environment.”
It will help in good governance, providing a place where contentious issues can be discussed, things like the Defence white paper, or the Bougainville crisis.
“Groups of indigenous people can meet in a nonthreatening environment with other stakeholders. When the prime minister meets indigenous people in Parliament House, it is a threatening place for them.
“The intent is for the centre to be evocative of the round table and corroborees, where stakeholders can identify each others values and find common ground to build on, avoiding confrontation.
Some issues will be resolved without the need for legislation. It will be like working in a modern cathedral, respectful and safe.”
The project committee hopes to begin building the centre in late 2007, if it is successful in securing on time the estimated $20 million in funding that is needed.
Eighty University of Sydney architecture students spent the last semester working on a brief to design the centre.
They were asked to take into account the centre’s setting within Canberra’s Parliamentary Triangle, on Commonwealth Avenue between the National Library and Parliament House.
Fifteen of the best student designs are on exhibition at the ANU’s National Europe Centre until Friday.
Adele Rowland, 23, was one of the students whose work was selected for the exhibition. Having grown up in Melba, she said her local knowledge had helped her in her design.
“I was a lot more familiar with the site than the others,” she said, “At least 100 hours of work went into the designs.
“It was good to have a project that had a real brief, to work with actual clients. It is almost unheard of to have this exposure as a fourth-year student.”
Her classmate, Luke Gerzina, 24, of Sydney, said he had also enjoyed the reality of the project.
“We didn’t have in mind any competition, we were designing for our tutors really. But our client actually chose us, that’s better than any mark, and to be in our own exhibition, that’s awesome.

VALE - NEVILLE GRUZMAN AM
Anyone with an interest in Sydney architecture will note with sadness the passing of Neville Gruzman. His was one of those instructive lives that spanned an epoch, from his early commitment, as a student, to modernist design in the lee of Wilkinson’s hold on the Faculty, through to his ongoing criticism of contemporary practice. He was failed for the former and chided for the latter – neither deflected him in the long run.
Neville Gruzman was born in Sydney in 1928, and raised in Bondi and Bellevue Hill. The early death of his father in 1931 pitched the upbringing and education of the three Gruzman boys – Laurence, Neville and Des, all under ten – into the hands of his mother Rosalind. Following Laurence, Neville attended Sydney Boys High, and commenced studying architecture at Sydney University in 1946. The influences he recalled best from his students days were George Molnar and Lloyd Rees. His first built work came while still a student – a house for an aunt on the waterfront at Rose Bay, completed in 1952. The early 1950s saw Gruzman abroad on two vivid tours, one to Europe and shortly after to Japan. The latter marked Gruzman deeply, and its influence is discernible in his work from the moment of his return. He shared offices with Ruth Harvey, Bill Lucas and Tony Moore, and became a central figure in the distinctive architectural identity to emerge in Sydney in the late 1950s and 1960s.
His Goodman House (1956) and Holland House (1962) are deserved Sydney classics. So, too, were Purnell Motors (1954) and the South Head and District Synagogue (1956) in their original forms. The Hills (1966/1983) and Gowing (1969) houses and Gruzman’s own incremental house should all be better known.
Neville would never forgive an anodyne piece on him. He protected his achievements and valued his own work, sometimes to excess. Occasionally the fallout from an ill-advised comment would envelop Neville, and expose a curious naivety on his part as to how it had all come about. To those close to him he had a singular charm and a dry irony, not to mention a keen feel for the good life.
I liked most of all how he fought for architecture. He never held any doubts as to its value, and he tirelessly told the world it needed more. Perhaps, in this spirit, we should acknowledge what is sometimes overlooked: the strength of his work and its contribution to the confidence Australian architecture now enjoys.

Chris Field, a PHD graduate of this Faculty won the ABC's Inventor of the Year Award on the "New Inventors" program. Chris' invention, an acoustically insulated wall ventilator, had its genesis in his PhD research supervised by Fergus Fricke in the former Department of Architectural and Design Science. Chris' research is an example of that rarity - University research that is actually of some use and benefit to the community.

The Inaugral Super Studio Competition was initiated and organised by four University of Sydney Faculty of Architecture students, Bryna, Allan, Josh and Steven. These amazing students project managed the competition, which we hope will continue each year, being organised by a different university each round."In-Between  or Anywhere"
According to a team of University of Sydney architecture students led by Ross Langdon &Hamish Watt (BArch Year 5 students) & Alex Nichols and James O'Neill (BDesArch Year 2 students) a better solution to Sydney's urban sprawl would be to revive an abundance of under-utilised spaces such as the city's lanes and alleyways has happened in Melbourne. Earlier this month, students from four of the state's leading universities had a competition to develop a series of visions examining Sydney's growing and ageing population and scarce resources which was unveiled in the Sydney Town hall.

All Welcome

Collaboration between Engineer and Architect – Our Work
Creativity is not the sole province of the architect. Engineers are also creative people and make a major contribution to the design process.
You will see from the illustrations I am going to show, that the engineer plays a crucial part in the design process so that, sometimes, it is difficult to know ‘who designed what’. 
Engineers are challenged by architects to find innovative solutions to their concepts and sometimes to achieve the impossible.
It is a fact that true innovation in engineering is difficult to achieve since most structural solutions already have a precedent. However the challenge for the creative engineer is to design a structure that is not only appropriate for the architecture but is efficient, elegant and economic.

SECOND YEAR EXHIBITION- Second Year Studio, LEVEL 3

Free drinks, music and food

Faculty Hearth, Wilkinson Building

The importance of architecture in social life lies in its very materiality. By giving shape and form to the material world, architecture creates a visual representation of values, defines the structure of human flows, and provides the physical site where everyday life occurs. Architecture does these through the body. It is the body that perceives, moves and eats. The body itself is a place in space. The individual is located in a body that is socially, culturally and historically specific. In what ways can the building create links between otherwise unrelated bodies? Can the building be created as a spatial network which will not only assist to create new connections, but will also reinforce the appeal of urban public life?

Exhibition: The second-year architectural design studio explores these possibilities through the project of Å’A Spatial Network for Bodies: Camperdown Residential Cooking School and Café‚. Students have not only investigated into the conceptual and spatial interpretations of program, but have also undertaken a tectonic model to explore their ideas about construction, materials, spatial qualities, details and finishes.

The Nature of Beauty
Are the rules that proscribe a beautiful Japanese garden in the ancient text of the Sakuteiki; the measurements that the Renaissance architect Palladio used; the lines that Christian Dior flattered the 1950s female body with; or the dish that Auguste Escoffier is famous for creating for elite French society: Tournedos Rossini; are these all expressions of absolute beauty.
Philosophers and mathematicians describe some arguments or equations as having beautiful solutions, so today we thought we'd expand our horizons and talk to experts in all of our Comfort Zone areas of interest about whether beauty is restricted to what we can see, or if there are other elements that pull at our imaginations and help us transcend the senses.

Urban and Regional Planning and Policy PhD Graduate is awarded the Justice Medal for his work in the advancement of tennant's rights In the early 1970s, there was no Rental Bond Board, Residential Tenancies Act and no Fair Trading Tribunal. In short, tenants had no rights. "I had one come in and he had a card: 'Big Jim - we move anyone'," recalled Dr Mowbray. "The landlord had sent round Big Jim to lock out the tenant. They could do that." Over the past 30 years, the co-ordinator of the Western Sydney Tenants Service has stood in front of bulldozers, had his life threatened as he fought for those with nowhere else to turn. Now Dr Mowbray has been recognised with the Justice Medal, the top honour at the NSW Law and Justice Foundation's 2004 Justice Awards. The latest edition of the Tenants' Right Manual refers to him as a "treasure" and his efforts have been crucial to many advances in tenants' rights. It began at Redfern Legal Centre, where he did his last placement as a social work student. Soon he had established the Tenants' Right Project with Shelter NSW followed by the Tenants Union in 1976. The tactics were brazen, with landlords even being shamed in front of the neighbours and TV crews.
The bond board opened its doors in 1977 and the Tenants Advice and Advocacy Program followed. It took another 12 years for the Residential Tenancies Act, which now provides consumer protection for the state's 1.5 million renters. He also conducted a research project from 1984-94 that exposed the chief argument by landlords against tenant rights - disincentive to invest - as an empty threat. "They said they were going to sell. It did not happen ... where tenants have been given rights, the stock of rental housing has increased quite considerably." He has enjoyed great support from his wife, Pamela - also a tenancy worker - but says there is still much to be done. He says those who leave share houses should have their names removed from leases, there should be more protection for long-term boarders, owners should prove rent increases are justified, and there should be "just-cause evictions". Dr Mowbray reckons the best part of his job is "getting a little bit of justice for someone". "Usually tenants shake in fear when they are dealing with landlords," he said. "I had a landlord who found out I was secretary of the Tenants Union and he was shaking. He gave me back the bond money without any questions."

Among the few who received awards this year, she has also been nominated by Professor Paul Ramsden, PVC (Teaching & Learning) as one of only three to enter the national 2003 Australian Awards for University Teaching.
This is a signal honour for Kristine – the highest teaching honour the University bestows. Please join me in wishing her good luck in the national competition.
Professor Gary Moore, Dean

"Jørn Utzon has followed Glenn Murcutt in winning this year's Pritzker Prize for Architecture 3 days before his 85th birthday and just a week after his Sydney honorary degree. Utzon's son Jan commented "He (Jørn) has this feeling that he likes best the honours that have come to him from Australia and it means a lot to him, the warm feelings that come to him from Australia."
