Australian Architecture Association Annual Exhibition

26 10 2009

 

WHEN:  1ST OCTOBER – 29TH NOVEMBER

WHERE:  CUSTOMS HOUSE – LEVEL 2

 

Five years after the first Australian Architecture Association (AAA) Young Architects exhibition, curator Gerard Reinmuth revisits this theme but with a focus on Sydney practitioners exploring the potential for digital technology in architecture and urban design practice and installations in line with Customs House’s own emphasis on digital media work in a range of disciplines.

In a city where a certain traditionalism defines architectural practice, this year’s annual AAA exhibition takes as look at the new wave of technologically savvy young architects such as Chris Bosse and Patrick Keane, and via a range of practitioners and students centred around the Department of Architecture Building at The University of Technology (UTS). These figures include expatriates Anthony Burke, David Burns, Tom Barker, Frank Minnaert and two locals Adrian Lahoud and Joanne Jakovich.  

An exhibition presented by the Australian Architecture Association (AAA). The AAA is committed to revealing Sydney’s architecture to a wider audience. Visit www.architecture.org.au for more information, tours and talks.





Testing Reality – The Architect and the Model

26 10 2009

 

WHEN:  1ST OCTOBER – 1ST NOVEMBER

WHERE:  CUSTOMS HOUSE RED ROOM AND MEDIA WALL

 

Curated by Mark Szczerbicki as part of his Byera Hadley scholarship and coinciding with this year’s Sydney Architecture Festival, the exhibition explores the changing role of the model in today’s architectural practice.

A modernist building designed in the late 1940’s by the iconic Australian architect Harry Seidler – the Marcus Seidler House – becomes the focus of a series of architectural models produced especially for the exhibition. The models represent a wide variety of scales and materials, as well as techniques ranging from the traditional craft-based to emerging digital and 3D printing technologies.

The exhibition is supplemented by insights into the behind-the-scenes design process of some of Europe’s leading architectural offices through images and movies of the work of Jean Nouvel, Bolles+Wilson, EMBT and Delugan Meissl among others.
