Asia Pacific Architecture Festival 7-20 March 2020 (QLD)

2nd Jan 2020 • Events

Changing tides: water and responsive design. The 2020 Asia Pacific Architecture Festival celebrates our profound relationship with water.


The annual Asia Pacific Architecture Festival (APAF) is returning in 2020 with a diverse and engaging program centred around this year's theme: “Water.” With our changing climate at the forefront of global conversation, the 2020 festival will address the role of this essential resource in shaping the growth of urban and rural regions across the Asia Pacific.

Presented at venues across Queensland from 7 to 20 March, the festival will deliver an exciting program of exhibitions, installations, symposia, lectures and workshops that promote and celebrate architecture’s pivotal role in the culture, sustainability and economy of the Asia Pacific region.

Returning for its fifth year, APAF has established itself as an important event on Brisbane’s cultural calendar. Highlights of the 2020 program will include knowledge sharing and inspiration from high-calibre architects working in the Asia Pacific region, featuring speakers from India, China, Japan and Thailand.

The program will be announced shortly and is curated by The University of Queensland’s School of Architecture Dean Cameron Bruhn and Graduate of Architecture Georgia Birks (pictured).
