Architecture and Renovation, Inner Brisbane events

Contemporary Queensland Architects

 It’s hard to not be biased, but we have some incredibly talented local architects. And a new exhibition at South Bank’s Gallery of Modern Art is the perfect showcase for their work. “Place Makers: Contemporary Queensland Architects” displays the creative talents of 22 firms, with samples of residential and public projects from the past two decades. Displays include architectural models, films and digital modelling and several of the designs are stunning.

An appropriate venue too given the Gallery itself started life as a design competition between architects. Eventual winners Lindsay and Kerry Clare of Architectus have other projects profiled in this exhibition, along with industry stalwarts like Wilson Architects and Rex Addison. Names well-known for their recent contributions to recent inner-city development are also on show, including Richard Kirk (the designers behind Albion’s new “Mill” project) and Arkhefield (Tenneriffe’s “One Macquarie” and “Ellington”).

The exhibition runs until November 23rd and entry at the Gallery of Modern Art is free.
