Aidan Anderson, Founder of The Local Project
We’re thrilled to have Aidan Anderson as our Home ambassador this year. As Founder of The Local Project, we look forward to sharing some of this year’s inspiring local architecture and design projects with you.
The Local Project began as an Instagram account in 2015, born out of Aidan’s experience as a furniture maker and desire to foster a connection between designers and the community at large. Since then, The Local Project has grown across a range of channels encompassing the website, Instagram, Pinterest, and YouTube. Print has been the most recent addition to The Local Project’s repertoire, with the publication launching in 2019 as a periodical that is released three times a year. Aidan is driven by his passion for growing authentic and engaged communities – a vision that remains the core of The Local Project.
Discover Aidan's top picks across some of Sydney’s most exciting residential projects.
Two Point Perspective: the Glass House
Duration: 49:47 min
In this podcast, we go to a well-known Sydney house from the 1950s, but one very few people will have visited.
It's the Glass House by Bill and Ruth Lucas. We're going to be meeting current residents, Anthony Gill and Sarah McSpadden, and also Peter Lonergan - something of a Lucas expert and the somewhat reluctant custodian of the Bill Lucas archive.
Paradise on Earth
Duration: 52 min
Paradise on Earth curator Dr Anne Watson is joined by other Griffin experts, architects, and current and former residents of Griffin-designed homes to discuss the experience of living in the experimental suburb of Castlecrag, and the significance and enduring impact of Marion Mahony Griffin’s work in Australia.
