The exhibition is curated by Dale Jones-Evans, a national award winning architect and Adjunct Professor of Architecture UTS at the Art and Design Gallery in Studio Becker’s theatrical new showroom in Redfern (designed by Dale Jones-Evans).
Jones-Evans has selected iconic architects from Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane who will each exhibit drawings, photographs and models of a house they consider to be ‘seminal’ to their practice as well as a current house they are working on or have recently completed. The juxtaposition of the two houses will reveal how each architect has evolved and developed their practice over time.
As Jones-Evans says,
“As makers of iconic residential architecture, our Australian architects continue to explore and leave a wake of work across this continent, which inspires younger generations of architects to push further. There will be a sequel exhibition next year, titledNew Icons by New Icons, an exhibition of cutting edge houses by a new and younger generation of Australian architects”.
The selected architects are:
Denton Corker Marshall
McBride Charles Ryan
Alex Popov (PopovBass)
Durbach Block Jaggers
Kerry + Lindsay Clare
Icons By Icons is on display until November 10 at Studio Becker: 52 – 54 Turner Street, Redfern
