The Apartment House, Brisbane Launch

7 October, 2017 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Join us for the Brisbane launch of the new Australian book The Apartment House: Reframing the Australian Dream.

A new generation of homeowners is foregoing the big backyard in favour of the convenience, sustainability and affordability of life in a townhouse or apartment. From suburban duplexes to medium-density apartment blocks and vertical living in twin towers, this book explores some of the best examples of contemporary multi-residential living.

At this launch event editors Katelin Butler and Cameron Bruhn will introduce their latest book; Alice Hampson will share her insights on the Queensland context of apartment living; and architect Liam Proberts (Bureau Proberts) and client Cam Ginardi (G.B.W Developments) will present Silt Apartments, which is featured in The Apartment House.

Event supported by Houses magazine and Thames and Hudson

Date: Saturday 7 October

Time: 2.30pm – 3.30pm

Where:  Asia Pacific Design Lounge, Level 2,  State Library of Queensland
