UQ Architecture Lecture Series: Finn Pedersen & Martyn Hook


Hundreds of architecture enthusiasts joined us for the first lecture in the 2014 UQ Architecture lecture series, presented by the University of Queensland School of Architecture and the Asia Pacific Design Library.
Finn Pedersen and Martyn Hook from iredale pedersen hook kicked off the series on Tuesday March 25.

The architecture of iredale pedersen hook is drawn from a landscape that is dominated by the horizon. In Australia the desert and the ocean operate as constant counterpoints to the occupation of land by built objects. The work shares an understanding of an edge condition that is described by remote locations, incredible sites and the centre of the peripheral.

iredale pedersen hook is dedicated to the pursuit of appropriate design of effective sustainable buildings with a responsible environmental and social agenda. Their projects have won multiple awards; the West Kimberly Regional Prison was awarded a Public Architecture Award (2013 Australian Institute of Architects Awards – WA), three National Architecture awards and International Architecture Award (2013) from The Chicago Athenaeum.
