CHC Speaker Series - Humanitarian Architecture & Corporate Social Responsibility Panel Discussion
One Heart Foundation
Event Details
6:00 pm AEST Thursday 15/06/2023
Brickworks Design Studio Melbourne
Hear from charity founders, humanitarian architects and leaders in the Corporate Social Responsibility realm about their experiences and advice on how architects and businesses can make a real impact in the world.

Amy and Karrie have committed to running a full marathon and fundraising $30,000 as we take part in Run From Poverty 2023.

Run From Poverty is an experience which exists for two primary reasons:

- To raise funds to break the poverty cycle through empowering children to fulfil their potential.

-To provide an immersive experience; empowering participants with a defined sense of purpose, leadership development and a pathway to make our impact in the world.

Ticket prices are a direct donation towards our $30,000 fundraising goal which we aim to surpass before we land in Kenya mid July.

Alix Smith
Alix Smith Prinicpal, Hassell

Alix Smith is a principal and architect of international multidisciplinary design practice Hassell, based in Melbourne.

She has led the design of city shaping projects such as the Melbourne Metro, a series Level Crossing Removals, and the business case for Royal Melbourne Hospital and Royal Women’s hospital redevelopment.

Her interest in designing for social equity began during her studies at the university of Melbourne where she joined a design studio that constructed a community centre in a First Nations community in the Pilbara in Western Australia.

More recently she has been instrumental in the conception of the One Heart Tanzania Project, a refuge and education centre for vulnerable girls. Through Alix and Hassell’s design advocacy, the project, which started as a “quick drafting exercise” has been transformed into a project with enormous potential for greater impact, ultimately bringing in project partners from Architects without Frontiers and Clarke Hopkins Clarke.”
