The Generative Space Primer: Learning From The 2017 Generative Space Award Recipients

Wayne Ruga, PhD, FAIA, FIIDA, Hon. FASID
Founder and President, The CARITAS Project

Meet the recipients of the 2017 ‘Generative Space Award’ (to be announced). See their submittals; learn from their presentations; engage with these leading pioneers in a discussion about how both systemic and sustainable improvements to health, healthcare, and wellbeing can be made through the design of the environment; and then plan your own strategy for submitting your pioneering projects to the 2018 ‘Generative Space Award’ in June 2018. This program will draw, further, from the present view of Janus – as we celebrate the designation of new exemplars of more caring environments and attempt to gain new ‘awareness and insight’ to illuminate our journey towards a new, more desired future.

This program is the second part of the progressive journey of Generative Space Track programs, culminating in a free, all-community event on Wednesday afternoon, 20 September, where the clarity, design, structure, and tangibles of our new future vision will continuously unfold throughout these programs. Attendees are invited to participate in any or all of these programs.
