Event description

Description

To plan and imagine a new city of the future, where people, design and technology flourish, we need to contemplate our older and more-recent outputs in people-centric place-making.

This exhibition on the work of Newell Platten and Robert Dickson shines a light on an intense oeuvre of architectural output from the 1960’s, 70’s, 80’s and 90’s that produced work crafted to our location, climate, lifestyle, materials and environment.

Their work has been described as a 'friendly and more relaxed form of Modernism’

Graduating in Architecture during the post war years, Newell Platten and Robert Dickson were frustrated that Modernism was regarded as a ‘passing fad’, so they set about to design their own future. This was not simply by stylistic mimicry but by setting out to design from first principles. Following time abroad they returned and in partnership started their long conversation about architecture, working, talking and experimenting to produce an architectural ethos of their own, something which resulted in what has been called ‘A friendly and more relaxed form of Modernism’. This belief in themselves and the people around them helped them create their own future and in doing so created a future for South Australians now appreciated by both designers and users alike.

You are invited to attend the opening of this exhibition to celebrate an impressive body of work.

Thanks to the project leaders at Phillips Pilkington Architects, The Architecture Museum, University of SA and photographer, David Sievers.
