Presented at various venues across Queensland from March 1 to 14 2016, the Asia Pacific Architecture Forum is set to bring together leading architects and designers from across the entire Asia Pacific region to discuss and promote architecture’s vital role in the culture, sustainability and economy of the region.

The Asia Pacific region is in the midst of an unprecedented growth period, and architects have a pivotal role in shaping the future of cities going forward. Through a range of exhibitions, installations, symposia, lectures and workshops, the Asia Pacific Architecture Forum will aim to explore and open up the ways these new cities can responding to the opportunities currently presenting themselves in this, the the co-called Asian century.

The forum is a presented in collaboration between Architecture Media and State Library of Queensland, and presenting partners Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation, BVN and the Museum of Brisbane with event partners University of Queensland School of Architecture, Australian Institute of Architects, Artisan and the Australian High Commission Singapore; and is presented in association with QAGOMA and Maison & Objet Asia.

“Queensland has strategically positioned itself as relevant and influential in the region, through an important focus on cultural exchange and excellence of engagement in all areas of the arts” said Queensland Government Architect Malcolm Middleton “None are more important now than the standard of architectural execution in this sub-tropical place that resonates strongly with our Asia Pacific neighbours.”

The full program can be seen at the forum’s website.
