Event Details

A conversation about homes that connect cultures

Go behind the scenes to hear how two architects have designed homes that simultaneously consider Indigenous and European cultures and histories.

This event is part of the 2019 Asia Pacific Architecture Forum, held 13 to 26 March 2019 at venues across Queensland.


Brisbane-based architect Kevin O’Brien, a principal at BVN, will give insight into the creation of the Archibald Street House, which he designed with Kevin O’Brien Architects in collaboration with Susan Ellison in 2010. Perhaps the most compelling idea of the project is located in the symmetrical design process and how that enabled a consideration of the Indigenous and European heritages of its occupants. 

Nicholas Dalton, founding director of New Zealand practice TOA Architects, will share the story of Motutara – a dwelling that embodies a gesture of two wings, touching the earth lightly. The first wing is named "Zealand," paying homage to the homeland of Aotearoa’s European discoverer in 1642, Able Tasman. The second wing is named "Ngahere," which translates to "forest."
