Andrew Burns, Australia House winner
Presented by Architecture Australia
The Australia House competition, organized by the Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennial in Japan, drew 154 entries from a vast array of practitioners and students from Japan, Australia and beyond. Architecture Australia has invited a selection of entrants to present their proposals this Tuesday @ Tusculum Talk. The competition brief was to provide a space in which Australian artists can work, live and display art. The previous setting for these activities was a hundred-year-old traditional farmhouse that collapsed from the aftershocks of the tsunami and earthquake that devastated Japan in March 2011.
Speakers include the competition winner Andrew Burns, Brit Andresen from second-placed B.A.M.F, and entrants Andrew Burges, David Neustein and Jas Johnston, and Peter Stutchbury and Janet Laurence.
