Some of Sydneyâ€™s most recognised and innovative Architectural firms exhibit at Sydneyâ€™s Boutwell Draper Gallery this month.
February 12th, 2009
Sydney Art Gallery, Boutwell Draper Gallery, are currently exhibiting an extensive body of architectural projects from a number of Sydney’s best architecture and design firms.
James Draper and Susan Boutwell began their art gallery – concentrating on contemporary Australian artists – in 2000. At the time Draper spent most of his time running his Architectural model-making business.
This background in architecture inspired Draper and Boutwell to begin a yearly architecture-based exhibition each February. This introduction to the series will showcase a substantial portfolio of work from nine Sydney Architects.
The nine firms involved have supplied everything from original sketchbooks and drawings to models and multimedia displays:
Showing compositions: scale timber models and drawings
Drawings and photographs from The Ballast Point project, Birchgrove project and the Tkts booth at Times Square, New York [Hero Image, 04, 06, 07]
DALE JONES-EVANS PTY LTD ARCHITECTURE
A selection of drawings, photos and models from various projects 
LACOSTE + STEVENSON
11 years of sketches: 25 A3 sketch books
LAVA LABORATORY FOR VISIONARY ARCHITECTURE

A selection of projects on their website from July 2007-February 2009

A fascinating look at over 20 years work from Sydney’s leading architects, Arichtecture 09 – 9 Architects, will run until 28 February 2009. Future architectural exhibitions at the gallery are likely to follow a different format, further exploring the profession of architecture.
