COLOUR and contemporary living were on the agenda when architects from outlying regions of Bathurst and Orange gathered recently.
The architects came together for shared learning, fellowship and networking, including connecting with the Bathurst community.
Supported by Bathurst Regional Art Gallery, Architects OutWest curated a talk by practising ecological architect Dr Rena Czaplinska-Archer about contemporary living in a heritage context.
It was followed by a public talk at Bathurst Regional Art Gallery by Dr Zena O'Connor, an evidence-based researcher of colour and founder of Colour Collective Sydney, who addressed contemporary colour strategies in design and architecture.
The talks were held during the exhibition of Marion Hall Best: Interiors at the art gallery, enabling architects and the public to place the talks in context, Architects OutWest member Ingrid Pearson said.
"Both talks attracted an audience of architects, artists, interior designers from as far afield as Bowral and Sydney, and members of various historical groups in Bathurst," she said.
"Positive comments about the talks were received from the audience, who found the talks intellectually stimulating and thought provoking."
