Towards Openness, Australian Launch

17 March, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join us for the Australian launch of the new architecture book Towards Openness by Li Hu and Huang Wenjing of OPEN Architecture.

Drawn from keen observation of the rapidly changing social economic landscape of China, and using OPEN Architecture’s projects as case studies, Towards Openness is a symphony of seven built projects and six idea chapters which are interestingly interwoven to offer an in-depth examination of OPEN’s unique practice and the critical thinking underlying their work.

OPEN is a passionate team of designers, collaborating across different disciplines to practice urban design, landscape design, architectural design, and interior design, as well as the research and production of design strategies in the context of new challenges.

At this launch event Li Hu (the founding partner of OPEN) and Ye Qing (senior associate of OPEN, a Brisbane native) will discuss the firm’s award winning work with Cameron Bruhn, Editorial Director of Architecture Media. The book will be available for sale at the event.

This event is part of the Asia Pacific Architecture Forum and supported by SLQ Library Shop.

Time: 11am – 12.00pm
