Creating Community Through Design Past Event

Presented by Freadman White, Fieldwork & Milieu Property

Milieu, together with their friends and collaborators, Freadman White and Fieldwork, host a panel discussion on how the design community continually adapts and responds to the physical environment, current issues and how solutions are driven by the desire to improve quality of life. The retrospective of 10 years of Milieu projects provides insights into changes in design throughout the decade, what the future looks like, and a photographic study of how occupants in Milieu homes inhabit their spaces.

Ilana Freadman & Michael White

Leading the team at Freadman White, Michael and Ilana embed a curiosity-driven and experientially charged tension into their architecture. Seeking to reveal beauty in seemingly simple and often overlooked settings, they strive to create visually intriguing and emotionally resonant spaces.

Believing architecture’s mandate to be making positive contributions to individual lives and the wider urban plan, Freadman White designs contextually informed structures with disciplined whimsy.

Rather than responding literally to physical surrounds, they pursue sensorial and textural moments that are informed by memories of place and the achievements of modern architecture.
