Dirk Yates



Speculative Architecture



Dirk Yates’s practice, Speculative Architecture, centres around the disciplines of art and architecture. His involvement with the local arts community includes directing the artist-run initiative The Farm (2002–2004), editor of a monthly journal of local art and developing exhibitions of painting and installation, along with collaborations on public projects.

The Corps à Corps structure at the Institute of Modern Art was developed in collaboration with artist Celine Condorelli and gardener Pete Shields, and focuses on principles of subtropical design in an urban context. The project won the 2018 Australian Institute of Architects Queensland Chapter Art and Architecture award. Speculative Architecture is currently developing projects for the refurbishment of exhibition venues and educational facilities.
