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.

“I’m interested in the invisibility of the design scripts that are hidden within objects we use every day that channel certain stereotypes,” says Central St Martins course leader Betti Marenko. Looking around there are plenty of design objects embedded with gender stereotypes – from the ubiquitous fail of Bic for Her pens to Nika Zupanc’s “feminine” gold chair for Moooi.
