A short history of Brisbane architecture

The evolution of Brisbane’s architecture – from the first convict structure of 1828 through to the present day was the focus for this fascinating exhibition. Considered the most original and distinctive of all Australian cities, Brisbane’s architecture has attracted national and international interest because of its fresh approach to the city’s sub-tropical climate. To showcase this distinct Brisbane style, the exhibition featured three contemporary scale-model houses made by students from The University of Queensland.
