June 2018 Educational Event – Briefing by Design

Thursday, 21st June 2018

Speaker: Ian Mitchell, Principal, Conrad Gargett, currently working on the Victoria Heart Hospital.

Ian believes that there is a strong argument for design input into the briefing process for health projects; that this should occur as part of a collaborative consultation process and that it will yield demonstrably better outcomes.

Ian will discuss this in the context of recent experience and briefs we have come to know and love.

Ian is a Principal of Conrad Gargett, and an award-winning architect who joined the practice in 2006 after building a distinguished career with firms such as John Simpson Associates and Daryl Jackson Pty Ltd, as well as a period at the helm of his own practice. A highly regarded leader in the architecture and construction industry, Ian has previously enjoyed a term as the Queensland President of the Australian Institute of Architects (AIA) and was made a Life Fellow in 2011. He is well-versed in project and design management across industry sectors. His thorough, purposeful approach to design is fuelled by a deep desire to create something meaningful, emphasising function and providing lasting positive experiences for inhabitants. Ian considers his work on prominent designs, such as the acclaimed Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital, as some of the greatest highlights of his career. He is committed to a life of learning and education, contributing his knowledge and skills as a mentor through the AIA, a Design tutor at Queensland University of Technology, a member of numerous juries and award panels, and a presenter at design conferences nationally and internationally
