Speaker Series


Brisbane Open House invites you to join architects, designers, planners and professionals in conversation. The 2017 Speakers Series will explore what influences the shape, experiences and growth of our city and its buildings.


Revitalising Industrial Spaces

Date: Wednesday 4 October // 6pm arrival for 6.30pm start

Location: Albion Fine Trades 97 Sandgate Road, Albion

About the Event:

If done right and situated well, a collective of makers can assist in the organic development of an industrial area into an exciting, thriving urban pocket. Meet some of the key players involved in Brisbane’s developing industrial precincts, which have become homes to collectives of locally recognised food and design-focused ‘makers’, as they discuss the challenges and benefits of stimulating a place-based rejuvenation.

Join Andrew Tynan (Albion Fine Trades) as he facilitates a panel discussion between Angela Hirst (Wandering Cooks),  David Twohill (Twohill and James Architects), Alex Donald (RL57) and Alex Ridgway (Neighbourhood Coffee Roasters).

Refreshments available on arrival at Neighbourhood Coffee Roasters. This event has been made possible thanks to the generous support of Jocelyn’s Provisions, Neighbourhood Coffee Roasters and Bacchus Wine Merchants.
