After a rewarding eight-year collaboration, the founding partners of the Asia Pacific Architecture Festival have decided that the time is right to explore other opportunities. 

Architecture Media and State Library of Queensland have been working on the project since 2015, seeing it as a way of contributing to the architecture and design community of Brisbane and beyond, a goal that’s common to our organisations. We’re proud of what we’ve achieved together and will continue to collaborate in the future.

The Festival’s success has been due, in no small measure, to the collective efforts of the many organisations that presented their activities through the program – more than 200 over its lifetime. Alongside these event partners, a small army of individuals have been most generous with their support, particularly our diligent curators and ambassadors, and the talented teams working behind the scenes.

And while we may be closing this chapter, we have no doubt that the studios, practices, community organisations, galleries, universities, government bodies and more that have contributed to this Festival, will continue to amplify the work of the architecture and design community across the Asia Pacific region, and continue to demonstrate why design matters in the years to come.
