Shepparton Art Museum is giving district residents a chance to hear from architect John Denton.

One of the founders of Denton Corker Marshall, Mr Denton will discuss the idea of architecture as land art and how this idea relates to the new SAM.

DCM last year won the architecture competition for the new SAM to be built on Victoria Park Lake.

A SAM spokesperson said DCM was one of the most significant and successful Australian-owned international architecture and design practices with offices in Melbourne, London and Jakarta.

‘‘They have designed landmark projects, including Melbourne’s gateway project, Museum Victoria and exhibition building,’’ they said.

‘‘Internationally, DCM designed Stonehenge visitor information centre and Australia’s Venice pavilion.’’

The lecture is on Thursday from 5.30pm to 7pm at Eastbank, 70 Welsford St, Shepparton. Tickets cost $25 or $20 for Friends of SAM members.
