Brisbane’s recently completed 400 George sits on the axis of what is fast becoming known as a public art hub in the burgeoning North Quarter of Brisbane’s CBD. Reigning throughout the base building, foyer and integrated foyer artworks is a visual code of simplicity, refinement, materiality, and the desire to connect people with place.
The project, with base building by Cox Rayner Architects, comprises 43,000 square metres over 34 levels and links Old Government House to the Brisbane Magistrates Court, and the future site of the Supreme and District Courts with South Bank’s cultural precinct via the Kurilpa Bridge.
