Our guest in this episode is Bonnie Herring from Breathe Architecture. Bonnie is the director of architecture and sustainability at Breathe and was the project architect of The Commons, which was the precursor to the groundbreaking sustainable apartment development model, Nightingale Housing. Bonnie participated in the Dulux Study Tour in 2015, where she visited Japan, Paris, and the UK. In this interview, Bonnie shares how intense the reporting and reflection during the Dulux Study Tour was, the difference between studying buildings in books at university compared to experiencing buildings in person, and the sustainable learning outcomes Bonnie gained while visiting extra-large scale projects as well as at famous architecture studios. This interview is conducted by Daniel Moore, an EmAGN representative based in Victoria.
