Protecting Iconic Houses

With Sydney’s real estate at an ever-increasing premium and the process of listing heritage homes becoming more difficult, the future of many iconic Australian houses is under serious threat.

In this talk hear Philip Goad, professor of architecture at the University of Melbourne, Annalisa Capurro, design educator and owner of the Jack House ( winner of the Sulman Award in 1957), and Ian Innes, assistant director, heritage, at Sydney Living Museums, discuss the challenges we face when trying to conserve iconic homes for future generations to appreciate.
