OPUN is fortunate to work with some of the best urban designers, architects, landscape architects, planners and other built environment specialists in the region and nationally.
In 2014, OPUN is offering a series of Design Masterclasses (details on dates and venues being determined). Each masterclass will be led by an expert in their field, and will aim to leave the delegate with the tools and knowledge of how to use that knowledge in the future. Most sessions will be half a day and will include lunch, unless otherwise stated.
