Building [Cities] Together - An Evening with Jasmine Palmer
Date and Time
We are excited about this opportunity to learn more about ‘group building’ in urban contexts across Europe and Australia from Jasmine Palmer, Architect, Researcher, Past Co-op resident and future co-houser.
Jasmine Palmer was guest researcher at the Collaborative Housing Research Laboratory (CoLab) of TUDelft in the Netherlands in 2018. While based in Delft, she continued her previous research into group building processes and projects in Berlin, London, Amsterdam and Den Haag. She has visited multiple built projects internationally and interviewed dozens of residents, professionals, government agencies and others to document their experiences and, importantly, learn lessons to help building groups here in Australia.
Jasmine’s passion for community involvement in infill housing began more than two decades ago as an architecture student. After designing groups of inner city housing for future resident collectives and raising her daughter within one such community, she undertook doctoral research asking the question "why does high-quality citizen-led infill housing occur in other countries, but not in Australia?”
As a member of Urban Coup, Jasmine is looking forward to living in what will be Australia’s first citizen-led cohousing apartment building. Ground has recently been ‘broken’ on the ‘Near & Tall‘ project which is scheduled to be completed in 2021.
