|MELBOURNE RECITAL CENTRE|
Recently voted as one of the ten most beautiful buildings in the world, this will be the first major conference to take place at Melbourne Recital Centre.
The hall features two auditoriums, the Elisabeth Murdoch Hall, and a smaller venue known as The Salon.
The former, a "modified shoe box" shaped music venue, is named after Dame Elisabeth Murdoch, its principal patron. It has seating for 1000 on two levels and was designed by Ashton Raggat McDougall with acoustic consulting by Arup Acoustics.
The Salon, a flexible venue intended for contemporary performances.
The Melbourne Recital Centre and MTA Theatre complex won the Moore Stephens National Award for Public Buildings at the Property Council of Australia - the country's highest award for a public building. The complex also won the Victorian Architecture Medal, the William Wardell Award for Public Architecture and the Joseph Reed Award for Urban Design at the Australian Institute of Architects State Architecture Awards in 2009.
