Portraits + Architecture

August 11, 2009

Canberra’s National Portrait Gallery presents an original interpretation of architectural practice.

Canberra’s National Portrait Gallery presents an original interpretation of architectural practice in a new exhibition – one that includes no architectural models.

For the exhibition, seven Australian architectural practices were invited to select a photographer to create a suite of portraits of their team. These portraits will be exhibited at the gallery accompanied by an installation designed by the architects themselves, which will serve as a “self-portrait” of the practice. Practices have utilised a wide array of mediums in this regard, including photography, video, graphic design, and 3D construction.

The architect teams and photographers featured include:
* CO-AP (Collaborative Architecture Practice) with Ross Honeysett
* Denton Corker Marshall with John Gollings; Johnson Pilton Walker with Ingvar Kenne
* Kerstin Thompson Architects with self-portraits by Kerstin Thompson
* Sean Godsell Architects with Earl Carter
* TERROIR with Brett Boardman
* Troppo Architects with David Lancashire.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a major website documenting the project, with podcast interviews with the architects exploring inspiration and identity.
*Where:* National Portrait Gallery, King Edward Terrace, Parkes, Canberra
*When:* 11 September to 15 November 2009
