This year sees Brisbane Open House celebrate 10 years. As part of this milestone, BOH are holding an art exhibition with artists, architects and designers showcasing their drawings from a curated list of buildings which are currently on display at the Institute of Architects Queensland Office until Sunday the 13th of October.
In the lead up to the exhibition, we ran a series of in-house workshops to support our participants in the preparation of submissions. The team shared skills, techniques and explored artistic mediums while drawing some of Brisbane’s most iconic architecture, ultimately building on our studio design culture.
Last night our Brisbane studio team visited the opening night of the exhibition where we collectively submitted 17 works from 8 participants. Each participant drew an iconic piece of Brisbane’s architecture of their choice, leading to an array of successful artworks.
