Alison was awarded a Byera Hadley travelling scholarship by the NSW Architecture Registration Board on Friday 31st October at the commencement of this years Sydney Architecture Festival. Alison was one of five graduate and six undergraduates to be awarded the opportunity. Alison’s study The Introspective House will focus on the nature of new housing typologies on small blocks in urban and suburban Japan. Alison will be meeting with many Japanese architects and viewing their work on the forefront of this exciting area of architecture and housing. We expect this will not only inform our practice but hope the research is able to add to the discourse in this important area.
