Wednesday 21.11, 6 pm, Museum of Finnish Architecture
Lecture by Professor Ester Charlesworth, RMIT, Melbourne, Australia:
Humanitarian Architecture – Disasters, Development and Design Responsibility
‘Humanitarian Architecture’ is a collective belief that through a consultative process of spatial problem solving, the design profession can contribute in a significant way to the complex challenge of rebuilding a city and its community, following the event of a natural disaster. Esther Charlesworth's lecture will explore her journey into humanitarian architecture over the last two decades and explore how she has merged theory and practice during her career in the establishment of Australia’s first design not for profit agency – Architects Without Frontiers.

Esther Charlesworth is a Professor in the School of Architecture and Design at RMIT University and Director of the Humanitarian Architecture Research Lab [HARB]. She will be in Helsinki in November, to discuss humanitarian architecture.
Professor Charlesworth is the founding Director of Architects without Frontiers (AWF). Since 2002, AWF has undertaken over 42 health, education and social infrastructure projects in 12 countries for vulnerable communities, and has been described by ABC radio broadcaster Phillip Adams as ‘destined to develop into one of the greater forces of good on this battered planet ’.
