Earlier this month, Brisbane threw open its doors to some of its most treasured places and buildings for all to see. In its ninth year, Brisbane Open House (BOH) allowed curious minds and architecture enthusiasts the chance to see behind the scenes of this great city. Once again in 2018, Urbis was keen supporter and sponsor of this exciting event.
Either on the ground at sites around the city, or presenting at festival events, the Urbis #cityshaper team was immersed in this year’s program. In the lead up to the Gold Coast Open House, for which Urbis is also a sponsor, we reflect on the success of BOH.
Since its humble beginnings in 2010, with just 20 buildings, BOH has grown to open 114 buildings and places in 2018. The program has also grown to incorporate lead-up events such as Pecha Kucha and the Great Debate. Urbis has a special connection with BOH, with Director Ben Lyons and Associate Director Stewart Armstrong both being BOH Committee members for seven years.
