The Concept behind The Concourse – a new exhibition at The Art Space
Multi-award winning architectural practice, Francis-Jones Morehen Thorp (FJMT) presents The Concept behind The Concourse, an exhibition of four recently completed significant cultural projects, from 9am to 5pm, Saturday 14 April to Sunday 29 April, in the Art Space on The Concourse, Chatswood.
From the small Surry Hills Library to the large scale of The Concourse, each of the four individual projects in the exhibition have been specifically selected to demonstrate a different design solution to the urban and public scale of their immediate physical context, as well as reflect their local community identity.
"Places of culture and learning are essential to our identity and sense of community,” said FJMT Design Director, Richard Francis-Jones. “The four architectural projects in this exhibition - The Concourse, Surry Hills Library and Community Centre, Auckland Art Galllery, and the Faculty of Law University of Sydney - seek to realise community aspirations through forms that are not merely functional but also a poetic expression of shared values, and social and environmental interconnection," he said.
A special presentation will be given by fjmt Design Director, Richard Francis-Jones, from 6.30pm, Thursday 19 April at The Art Space on The Concourse, to provide insight into the process of creating these individual and highly responsive projects.
“The Concourse is a popular cultural landmark of Chatswood’s CBD, providing a much needed arts and entertainment venue for the Willoughby community and beyond,” said Willoughby Mayor, Pat Reilly. “I invite members of the public to come along to this exhibition and learn more about these incredible constructions in our society,” he said.
