2021 Annual Report

This time of unprecedented disruption is prompting a reset of the way we work, live and play, reshaping our institutions. Likewise, our business practices are changing to new models as the economic and social imperative to act on climate is increasing. We need to revisit the built environment’s investment focus in order to meet social needs.

Where does that leave our policymakers? We require a new generation to step up and be supported. Their message will be clear, the need to provide balance to ecosystems, renew the destruction we have caused, and provide equity in the way we live. These philosophies echo the Institute’s virtual exhibition for the 2021 Venice Biennale InBetween, which provided a voice for First Nations designers across Australia and the Pacific in response to the global theme: How will we live together?

As architects, we are well placed to respond to these complex challenges given the diversity of voices we have enabled through the Institute.
