The Australian Institute of Architects - WA Chapter is celebrating quality architecture and design with a series of events from October 19-‐25.
The events program is focused on increasing public awareness and appreciation of architecture, as well as the role in which architects play in producing it.
Highlights for the 2013 Architecture Week include the inaugural ‘Go Away Come Back’ exhibition, the 3 Over / 4 Under Forum featuring established and emerging architects, and the return of the popular children’s event ‘Box City’.
According to Australian Institute of Architects - WA Chapter President and National President Elect, David Karotkin, the weeklong program of events provides an opportunity for everyone to engage with architecture.
“We’re looking forward to a week of celebrations for architects and the general public alike,” he said.
“This year’s dynamic program of events offers something for everyone, from our next generation of architects, who will try their hand at building a ‘box city’ at the State Library, through to a range of industry events.”
“This year for the first time the ‘Go Away Come Back’ exhibition explores architecture, travel, research & experience. It investigates what contributions can be made to our built environment as a consequence of understandings gained elsewhere through a range of engaging mediums at the Moores Gallery in Fremantle,” said Mr Karotkin.
