LiveLife Design Hunter® Seminar Series

Habitus presents the LiveLife Design Hunter® Seminar Series. These showroom based discussions will champion an emphasis on Residential and Consumer-based design issues with a range in focus from designing a so-called Australian design identity, the response to a resurgence of multi-generational living and keeping urban developments culturally respectful.

Indesign Media Asia Pacific has been bringing design to the global stage for over a decade and the LiveLife talks, hosted by members of the Habitus editorial team and industry heavyweights, at SID17 will be no exception.


Introducing this year’s LiveLife Design Hunter® Seminar Series topics …


Talking about your generation: Intergenerational cohabiting and Residential Design
Throughout the world, two things in particular are forcing us to live in a radically different manner than heretofore: (1) the ever-rising overheads of a voracious property market, and (2) our ever-increasing life expectancy and ageing population. How has the design world approached re-thinking the residential environment to accommodate the multiple needs of many generations in the single domicile?

Design Identities of Australia: Communities in Design
Identity is a hotly contested philosophical arena – and, rightly so.  But especially for our creative community, expressing identity through design carries a significantly broad array of integral stakeholders we need to consider. Across Australia, the Indigenous design world is leading the charge for reconsidering the role design plays in expressing the identity of communities.

Size and the City: Our developers have some explaining to do
Every year we are informed that urban density across the entire Asia Pacific region has reached a record high. While our collective population continues to increase alongside the growing strain on our urban environments, we look to our developers and urban planners to provide solution. Whether you call it ‘small living’, ‘slow living’, ‘low density’ or ‘high sprawl’, where does the urban planner fit within the A+D community? And, more pointedly, what can we learn from development experiments around the world?
