This exhibition is the second in the ABP Alumni Retrospective Series for 2010, showcasing the work of Faculty of Architecture, Building and Practice alumni. The show profiles the practice and vision of one of the most exciting young architects working in Australia today, Peter Ho, and his projects completed alongside PHOOEY co-founder Emma Young.

Established in 2004, PHOOEY Architects aims to create zero waste and is entertained by the sobriety of global warming. The practice, led by directors Peter Ho and Emma Young, has received international awards and publication worldwide for their ChildrenÂ’s Activity Centre at Skinners Playground. This exhibition also includes a sporting pavilion that tries to start a Mexican wave; a high-rise residential tower constructed from recycled shipping containers; affordable houses; a hair salon growing a surreal hair chandelier; four rivers flowing through a primary school; and a prototype bicycle shed due to be rolled out at train stations across Victoria.

The ABP Alumni Retrospective Series is intended to highlight the extraordinary range and contribution to the urban environment of alumni from all professional programs of the MSD within the Faculty of Architecture, Building and Planning, both recent and past.
