The Shalini Ganendra Fine Art gallery will be hosting a talk by Gregory Burgess, one of the most renowned Australian architects on 6th December 2012. Burgess has been known for his architectural works for the indigenous people where he applies his participatory approach that exudes his social and environmental architecture art.
The award winner will be giving a talk entitled Participatory Design, Responsive Architecture which will be part of the VC (Vision Culture) Lecture series organized by Shalini Ganendra. The VC Lecture series was created to make art more accessible and understandable for everyone. This programme was launched in January 2010 and since then, SGFA has brought in several international practitioners to engage the local audiences in talks and events on the arts.
Burgess, who is based in Melbourne operates his own Gregory Burgess Architects for 32 years where he has an illustrious career, winning the RAIA Gold Medal in 2004 and more than 40 other awards. He will be the latest VC Series Fellow to come to SGFA that has previously included renowned designers and artists like weaving artists Carol Cassidy, Japanese renowned photographer Michiko Kasahara and international curator Dr. Debra Diamond, among many others, all of whom have shared their experience and knowledge with the Malaysian art loving crowd.
