The Asia Pacific Design Library team joined many other history, design,  architecture and icon lovers as Brisbane Open House (BOH) launched their 2018 program on Tuesday September 11 2018 at The Tivoli.  We were keen to hear how the program has evolved and just what are the more than 100 highly anticipated locations that will be available for public inspection on the 13 and 14 October 2018

You can find the entire program and offerings at  Brisbane Open House 

Bookings will open at 9am Friday 28 September 2018 through the BOH website. Most buildings do not require booking however some do for privacy and safety reasons.
