Influence. Experience. Thought leadership. Just a few of the many compelling reasons why Taylor Burrell Barnett sponsored Stefanos Polyzoides’ visit to Perth in September. When someone like Stefanos comes to town, you want to soak up his knowledge as much as possible. That’s why we organised a breakfast at the Old Swan Brewery Function Centre.
The breakfast was attended by approximately 70 people, including the policy advisor for Planning Minister Hon. John Day (Emma Thunder), Hon. Ken Travers (Shadow Minister for Transport), development industry clients and key government figures. The feedback from all who were there has been both positive and rewarding.

Stefanos Leads Perth’s Light Rail Masterclass
During his visit, Stefanos led the ACNU’s Perth Light Rail Masterclass, a 3 day event which examined alternative routes for Perth’s proposed light rail corridor.
TBB Director Ben De Marchi was a facilitator at the event, alongside the many excellent contributors, with Stefanos bringing great insight into the future of Transit Oriented Development (TOD) in Perth.
Presenters and attendees worked together to produce indicative designs. This involved analysing possible light rail routes in Perth with a focus on architecture of place and densification typologies.
Masterclass outcomes can be viewed on the ANCU website https://www.acnu.org/.
The New Urbanism and Smart Transport International Conference
Also in Perth, Stenfanos gave the keynote address for the “New Urbanism and City” stream at the New Urbanism and Smart Transport International Conference. He was followed by our very own Bill Burrell and Ben DeMarchi, who discussed Perth’s transformation from sprawl via The New Urbanism.
