PROCESS is an independent public forum on architecture and related fields held on the first Monday of each month at Loop Bar, Melbourne CBD. Established in 2004 as an informal speaker series, the platform continues to stir local discourse, debate and discussion in the architectural and design community today. PROCESS is supported by the Australian Institute of Architects.
This November, PROCESS teams up with AGENCY, the 2017 Australasian Student Architecture Congress.

The theme of AGENCY conjures questions around personal identity, behavioural freedom and power to the individual within an existing framework of critical thinking and practice. As Jeremy Till writes, “Agency… is increasingly associated with an opening up, a widening of activities so as to intervene in, and adjust, overarching structures”.
Melbourne is a city full of determined architectural culture; innovative thinkers, collaborators, educators. How do the next generation of thinkers and agitators exercise their own agency, and what opportunities and challenges will they face both alongside, within and against this structure?
4 speakers will clarify their own definition of agency and how they find it applicable to the practice of architecture. Join us us on Monday 13th November to ruminate the idea of agency and perhaps be inspired to find your own.
