BUILDING COMMUNITY AND RESILIENCE BY DESIGN

INTRODUCTORY VIDEO

In this webinar, Paul Haar reflects on his career of 40 years, immersed in architectural practice and related pursuits informed by deep green principles and, where possible, operating inside small local economic and social systems. He discusses:

  • his early years dedicated to revitalising a self-help housing culture amongst remote indigenous Australian communities up North.

  • a few of his residential and institutional architectural projects back in Victoria.

  • things achieved and lessons learnt from the Mullum Creek eco-housing project in Donvale Victoria.

  • his lifelong engagements in Victoria with CERES Community Environment Park and now also its social enterprises CERES FairFood and CERES FairWood.

By sharing these experiences, Paul hopes to help younger professionals envisage what a worthwhile and satisfying life in environmentally and socially regenerative design and construction practice might look like in the world before us.
