UQ Architecture Lecture series: Penny Collins and Huw Turner


Join us for the second lecture in the 2014 UQ Architecture lecture series, presented by the UQ School of Architecture and SLQ's Asia Pacific Design Library.

The series invites leading architects to share and discuss new ideas and knowledge centred on the role of architecture and design in the Asia Pacific.

This week's speakers are Penny Collins and Huw Turner from Collins and Turner Architects.

Penny and Huw established Collins and Turner Architects in Sydney in 2002. The focus of the practice is the design and delivery of innovative environments for work, living, and play.

Their projects have won numerous awards including the Aaron Bolot Award for Multiple Housing, Sir John Sulman Medal for Outstanding Public Architecture, National Colorbond Steel Award along with state and national awards for sustainability.

The work of the practice has been published widely in books and magazines, including the Phaidon Atlas of Contemporary World Architecture, a publication documenting 1000 significant buildings of the early 21st century, and included in architecture exhibitions in Berlin, Venice, and Istanbul. A monograph of their work will be published by Australian independent architecture publisher URO media in late 2014.
