Purpose Built, University of Queensland’s School of Architecture

Purpose built

Experience the transformative power of architectural design in shaping communities and redefining the very essence of housing today.

Queensland's unique landscape, vibrant cultures, and diverse geographic conditions demand innovative architectural solutions that harmonise function, design, and purpose to deal with the increasing pressures on the built environment. 

From digitisation and material innovations to water sensitive design, new approaches to housing typologies, and the vital role of community involvement in design and planning conversations, this exhibition proposes a future built on ingenuity, collaboration, and a purposeful approach to the built environment.  

Purpose built is an immersive exhibition consisting of large-scale installations developed with research groups from University of Queensland’s School of Architecture, Design and Planning. 

This exhibition is a joint initiative of the University of Queensland and State Library of Queensland.
