SJB Architects Director, and presenter at the NUDF08 in Nathalia last year, Adam Haddow, has been awarded the 2009 Property Council of Australia Future Leader Award. The award recognises the contribution of individuals under the age of 35 working in the property industry.
Adam has a strong belief in developing sensible, well-designed higher-density living in cities, curbing urban sprawl. “This needs to be a period of time where we think much more about ‘us’ and less about ‘me’. We need to engage in built experimentation which delivers better quality public space, which is more connected, inclusive and sustainable. Higher densities can deliver really fantastic outcomes and it is time that we give it a try.” Adam receives a grant of $10,000 that he will use to further research urban densification.
