Design to support economic participation

The Industry Participation Advocate is working with the design fraternity to provide recommendations on how the government can drive innovation and growth to support the economy and provide long-term social and community benefits.  David Homburg, the SA Chapter President of Australian Institute of Architects, has been very supportive of this initiative and has actively encouraged an ongoing dialogue between the Office of the Industry Advocate and the Office of Design and Architecture SA.  Considering design at the commencement of projects will promote the increased use of South Australian inputs and has significant potential to provide breakthrough opportunities for innovative local design, products, systems and techniques.
