MRelay: After Future Practice

MRelay: After Future Practice Past Event

Presented by MPavilion

Future Practice (written by Rory Hyde) revealed alternative methods of design practice at the edge of architecture. Nine years since it’s publication, it is even more important that we empower emerging designers to have a more expansive approach to their practice. Challenges within today’s society demand we confront conventional practice with collaboration, and become more adaptable for an uncertain future.Hear about experiences outside traditional practice with a line-up of speakers in a tag-team conversation as part of the annual MRelay series. Featuring over ten speakers, this experimental talkfest will explore alternative modes of practice and ask the question: Can we rethink design education, and the opportunities available to graduates?

In a sports relay, a team covers a distance in turns, passing a baton from one runner to the next. In MRelay, thinkers, activists, provocateurs, architects and design doyennes share insights and ideas in this marathon conversation. It’ll be fast-paced, exhilarating and, best of all, deeply unpredictable. Emboldened by cheering crowds and a continuous supply of drinks, the evening will also include music and some good food.

This event is organised by Monash Architecture with Around (a group of Monash Architecture students and recent graduates).
