Brisbane Open House is celebrating 10 years of unlocking the architectural wonders of the City, hosting the annual Open House Worldwide Lecture.

This signature event will showcase Brisbane as part of a unique and growing international network and will explore the architectural trends, long term planning and collaboration of projects in South East Asia and their application to Brisbane.

Principal and Director of Safdie Architects Singapore, Charu Kokate will deliver the inaugural lecture on Thursday 3 October and share her experience creating incredible icons, including Marina Bay Sands and Jewel Changi Airport.

“Working within strict building regulations often poses considerable challenges for the architectural industry, however that is where the most groundbreaking work can be accomplished.
