Asia Pacific Architecture Forum

This event is now in the past.

The Asia Pacific is experiencing unprecedented urban growth. Architects have a critical role in shaping the future of cities across the region, responding to the diversity of its people and countries. Through exhibitions, installations, symposia, lectures and workshops, the Asia Pacific Architecture Forum will explore the ways new world cities are responding to the opportunities and challenges of the Asian century. The stimulating program of events will celebrate contemporary architecture and anticipate its exciting future. Participants will engage with architecture from across the region and reflect on Queensland’s important contribution to its culture.
