The Museum of Brisbane's "Living in the City: New Architecture in Brisbane & the Asia-Pacific" delves into Brisbane's unique relationship with its Asia Pacific sister cities. Nine projects currently under construction are showcased to look beyond the city and explore its place in the Asia Pacific.
While Brisbane has typically compared itself to Sydney and Melbourne, co-curator and Museum of Brisbane Deputy Director Christopher Salter wanted to explore the relationships developing between the city and its sister cities in the United Arab Emirates, New Zealand, China, South Korea, Indian, Taiwan, Japan, and Indonesia. Because the cities are the same size and are facing the same challenges, the exchanges between them offer a model for Brisbane's architectural future. The nine Brisbane projects, including Coorparoo Square, The University of Queensland student housing precinct, and the James Street hotel, will be on display with nine other Asia-Pacific projects until May 22.
