The Builtworks podcast is about buildings and the people that make them.

These days, most of the conversation about projects and design centres on beauty and aesthetics – the surface of things.

And of course, that’s important.

But the more fascinating stories of the built world are about problem-solving, working within constraints, seeing potential, and the inevitable human drama that goes into creating great work.

So in every episode, we bring you the behind-the-scenes backstory as to how buildings, structures, and places are designed, built, and brought to life.

Series One is in production.

We’re producing six episodes where leading built environment professionals from Australia take us inside their best work, deconstructing a favourite residential project.

Coming up, we’ve got episodes featuring Adam Brewer’s Newport House, Kerstin Thompson’s Albury House, Neil Cownie’s Roscommon House, and Troppo Architecture’s Outside [the] Box project.

So listen in, and you’ll hear compelling stories, learn surprising ideas, meet engaging characters, and discover unique voices … like Melonie Bayle-Smith of Bijl Architecture in Sydney.
