Parlour Lab

We are delighted to announce a new online event series, Parlour Lab, which brings research discussions in architecture and the built environment to the wider professional community.

Parlour Lab is presented in collaboration with Parlour, and The University of Queensland‘s School of Architecture.  The aim is to bridge the gap between practice and research, to provide a platform for researchers to speak to new audiences and an opportunity for the world of practice to engage with research.  

Sessions held Monday lunchtimes

Each month two guest researchers will talk about their research via a short presentation followed by a Q&A led by the conveners of the series Macarena de la Vega de León and Kali Marnane.

Watch Kali and Macarena chat about the idea here and get in touch if you would like to be a part of this series and share your research.
