The fifth edition of the Asia Pacific Architecture Festival is back in Brisbane (Australia), exhibition composed by sharing knowledge and inspiration of high caliber architects who work in the Asia Pacific region with guest speakers from India, China, Japan, and Thailand.
Due to the events the planet is going through, extreme environmental changes, water plays an essential role in the growth of urban and rural areas, and this is why this year’s theme is “Changing Tides: Water and Responsive Design”. APAF 2020 explores this resource and its relationship with people. According to Vicki McDonald, General Manager of Queensland State Library (host of the event) “we all have a relationship with water, as identity or memory, but especially as a necessary support”.
“Architecture touches our lives in different ways and focuses on our plans for the future. We are delighted by listening to talented architects, designers, and planners and their innovative answers and ideas on water in all the Asia Pacific area”. - Vicki McDonald
The festival will offer a program filled with exhibitions, installations, symposia, lectures, and workshops that promote and celebrate architecture’s contribution to this region’s culture, sustainability, and economy.
