The annual Asia Pacific Architecture Forum is returning in 2020 as the Asia Pacific Architecture Festival, with exhibitions, installations, symposia, and workshops happening across Queensland from 7 to 20 March. The festival is organized around the theme of “Water” and will aim to “promote and celebrate architecture’s pivotal role in the culture, sustainability and economy of the Asia Pacific region.”
Highlights of the festival include the Water exhibition at GOMA, The Architecture Symposium (with speakers from Thailand, India, China, Japan and New Zealand) and the second talk in the Women in Architecture series, which will explore the relationship between craft and architecture.
At the AA Roundtable: Rights and Reclamations event, Carroll Go-Sam (University of Queensland) will host a discussion on Indigenous experiences around land and the built environment, and comedian Tim Ross will perform his new live show, “Designing a Legacy,” which takes a look at the Australian families “whose lives have been shaped within the walls of modern masterpieces designed by Robin Boyd, Roy Grounds, Ken Woolley and John Andrews.” Head to the festival website to see the full program. asiapacificarchitecturefestival.com
