|ANU Marie Reay Teaching Centre|
WoodSolutions are holding a free half day conference on lightweight timber-frame and mass timber construction at the in Canberra, 23rd June. This will include a presentation on the venue for the event, the six story, timber framed, Marie Reay Teaching Centre, by Architects BVN, at the Australian National University. CPD certificates of attendance will be available for building professions.
While this conference is aimed at building professionals, it is also an opportunity for education professionals to see to see this groundbreaking building in use for an event. I attended the previous conference and found it of great interest. University education in Australia is changing and not just temporarily due to COVID-19. This will require new building designs for new teaching methods and require them to be built quickly (Worthington, 2019).
