Living in the City
Living in the city: New Architecture in Brisbane and the Asia Pacific was the feature exhibition in the inaugural Asia Pacific Architecture Forum, and explored nine new architectural projects in Brisbane currently under construction alongside one project from each of our nine Sister Cities in the Asia-Pacific: Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates), Auckland (New Zealand), Chongqing and Shenzhen (China), Daejeon (South Korea), Hyderabad (India), Kaohsiung (Taiwan), Kobe (Japan) and Semarang (Indonesia).
A double-sided large multimedia wall showed footage from each of the nine cities profiled.

In David Malouf and Friends five contemporary artists pay homage to Malouf by creating new artworks inspired by his writing.
Showcasing the broad and timeless themes of his work, the artists explored the familiar layers of his writing – from childhood memories to the crossover of European traditions and the Australian dream. In turn Malouf responded to the artist’s creations in writing featured in the exhibition.
