Our guest in this episode is one of Australian architect's greatest champions, modernist fanatic and comedian Tim Ross. In 2019 Tim was awarded the National President’s Prize, where the jury said, “Tim is one of our industry’s most passionate activists and champions. Not only has he raised the profile of heritage and design in general, he also promotes Australian architecture in his unique voice in popular culture”. In this interview, Tim shares why he started his performance tour “Man About House” staged in significant residential architecture, how Tim uses his unique experience and narratives to connect almost anyone to the Australian built environment, and how buildings say something important about the time in which they were built in. This interview is conducted by Daniel Moore, who is an EmAGN representative based in Victoria, and Sally Hsu, who is an EmAGN representative based in New South Wales.
