Diane Jones guest speaker at the 5th Annual Procurement and Supply Australiasia Conference
Diane Jones, PTW Architects Executive Director and UNSW Adjunct Professor is a guest speaker at the 5th Annual Procurement and Supply Australasia (PASA) Conference held at Randwick Racecourse Ballroom. Diane’s presentation The Importance of Design Beyond Style draws upon theoretical frameworks, evidence-based research, recent projects and case studies to emphasis how informed and creative design decisions enhance the well- being and experiences of people who are aging. This considered approach encourages reflection on conventional values, perceptions and judgements that normalise a stylistic attitude to meeting the needs of aging people. Diane's contribution brings focus to the 2019 conference's theme of exploring practical procurement solutions and strategies to meet continually changing and demanding age care expectations.
