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.


Presented at venues across Queensland from 1 to 14 March 2016, the Asia Pacific Architecture Forum will bring together leading architects and designers from across the Asia Pacific region. It will promote architecture’s pivotal role in the culture, sustainability and economy of the region.


The forum is a collaboration between founding partners Architecture Media and State Library of Queensland; presenting partners Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation, BVN and the Museum of Brisbane; event partners University of Queensland School of Architecture, Australian Institute of Architects, Artisan and the Australian High Commission Singapore; and is presented in association with QAGOMA and Maison & Objet Asia.
