The Asia Pacific Architecture Forum will return to Brisbane from 13 to 26 March, 2019. The annual forum brings together some of the Asia Pacific’s foremost architects, designers and thinkers and provides insight into Australia’s role in the region.
The headline event of this year’s forum is The Architecture Symposium, happening at the State Library of Queensland on 15 March. It features keynote speakers hailing from countries across the region, including Thailand, Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, New Zealand, Taiwan
In addition to the headline symposium, the two-week-long forum will feature a range of events catering to different interests. There will be another addition of the workshop Speed Date an Architect at the Museum of Brisbane, which will offer potential clients a series of twenty-minute consultations with Brisbane-based architects. There will be an exhibition of the finalists of the Tapestry Design Prize for Architects 2018, a tour of Barry Walduck’s modernist Eisenmenger House followed by an architecture film night, and a photography exhibition showcasing the work of Frank and Eunice Corley, who roamed the suburbs of South-East Queensland photographing houses in the 1960s and ‘70s. There will also be a number of other speaker series examining the architecture of Brisbane and the wider region, including the University of Queensland’s International Architecture Lecture Series.
The Asia Pacific Architecture Forum 2019 is an initiative of the State Library of Queensland and Architecture Media.
