Location: Brickworks Design Studio Tenancy 6&7, James St Centro 27 James Street, Fortitude Valley
With the increasing congestion of living within Brisbane’s middle-ring suburbs, older buildings in these areas are being bulldozed to make way for high-rise developments which yield high returns and provide a practical solution to urgent housing needs.
Historic buildings help foster our sense of national identity, link us to the stories of our past and ultimately form the personality of our streets and suburbs.
These are confusing times in the business of protecting Brisbane’s architectural heritage. To preserve and honor or to cast into oblivion to pave way for progress?
In true debating style, six leading architects, designers, planners and business leaders will pitch their arguments, for and against this controversial topic.
Complimentary drink on arrival.
This event has been made possible thanks to the generous support of Brickworks and Bacchus Wine Merchant.
