Australian Architects

Art Atrium hosts a bi-annual exhibition ‘Drawn by Design – The Art of Architecture’ focusing on drawings and paintings by prominent Australian architects. Drawing and sketching for a lot of architects are an integral part of their design process. A simple sketch or drawing can form the basis of a design concept that will be further developed and refined. A sketchbook in the hands of an architect is also the equivalent of a camera for a photographer or a journal for a writer. This exhibition captures the way different architects utilize sketches and drawings at work and at play.

Architects who had participated in this bi-annual exhibition from 2012 to 2016 include Rex Addison, John Ambler, Roger Barrett, Camilla Block, Angelo Candalepas, Malcolm Carver, Paul Connor, Tony Corkill, Philip Cox, Jon Crothers, Tanya Crothers, Tina Curtis, Rena Czaplinska-Archer, Neil Durbach, Richard Goodwin, David Ham, David Holm, Anton James, Chris Johnson, Virginia Kerridge, Swetik Korzeniewski, Jerry Liew, Colin Madigan, Louisa Manfedini, Ken Maher, Ian McGilvray, Fiona Mitchell, Lucy Moloney, Glenn Murcutt, Bob Nation, Antonia Pesenti, Paul Pholeros, Danielle Pinet, Peter Roy, Harry Seidler, Jose Serrao, Ian Stapleton, Peter Stutchbury, Alec Tzannes, Stephen Varady, Tone Wheeler, Mark Willett, Ken Woolley and Fang Xu.
