Notes Estate Salescraft
High-Rise Colloquium, symposium, Melbourne School of Design and Melbourne Design Week, March 21, 2022 (AEDT).
Virtual presentation for the High-Rise Colloquium, as part of the 2022 Melbourne Design Week. Based on research for the 2018 CCCP Colloquium, Columbia GSAPP, this presentation looks at the politics of the real estate image economy through a first-person narrative.

Melbourne’s skyline has undergone a radical metamorphosis; it now bristles with skyscrapers, which an increasing number of Melbournians call home. Where is this experiment in high-density living taking us, though?

In this 12-hour livestreamed colloquium, architectural theorists Hélène Frichot and Helen Runting will be joined by architect Andrés Jaque of the Office for Political Innovation; Singapore-based scholar Lilian Chee; Rhode Island-based, Australian architect Amelyn Ng; and guests from around the globe, each of whom will share their own high-rise story. The Colloquium invites audiences to consider the pitfalls, peculiarities, and potentials of this residential typology by joining this broadcast conversation.


This event can be livestreamed via Melbourne School of Design’s YouTube account. If prompted for a password, please enter: 152853.
