Exhibition: Fusion of Horizons - Australian Architects in Asia (1950s-80s) | July 13 - Sept 7

fusion of horizons

Fusion of Horizons tells the story of five pioneering architects from Australia who travelled throughout Asia in the post-war years and fundamentally contributed to the architecture and design of the continent. 

Adrian Snodgrass | Peter Muller | Kerry Hill | Alan Gilbert | Made Wijaya

These figures existed at the centre of an array of intellectual, professional, and business networks, and their architectural work collectively defined an aesthetic now readily identified with Asia.

The exhibition incorporates a range of objects and images from private archives located across three continents to present a narrative tapestry of intersecting encounters and professional pursuits. Private letters, diary entries, ethnographic research and documentation contribute to the story of this fusion of horizons, culminating in an array of spectacular architectural drawings and models that convey shared approaches to materiality and tectonics decades in the making.

Curated by Amit Srivastava (SABE) and Cole Roskam, and organised by CAMEA (University of Adelaide, University of Hong Kong), Fusion of Horizons opens Saturday 13 July and runs until Saturday 7 September. To find out more or register your attendance please visit the Eventbrite here
