Brian Klopper: Architectural Projects exhibition

The work of Fremantle-based architect Brian Klopper is examined in an exhibition in Perth.

Brian Klopper has been refining his practice since 1971, working within a limited and highly recognizable palette of recycled bricks, limestone, sawn timber and welded-steel-framed windows.

Grounded in the masonry tradition, his work spans single residential work, suburban infill projects and warehouse conversions, mainly in Fremantle. These are buoyed by his own developments and self-initiated projects. Klopper and his office have built a significant portion of this work themselves; Klopper has accumulated and refined self-taught skills over the course of his career.

The exhibition Brian Klopper: Architectural Projects was at the Cullity Gallery, University of Western Australia until 20 April 2012. It is part of a continuing series of exhibitions at the university documenting the work of significant Western Australian architects.
