The archi-tour: a local design concept
While touring architecture in our own city (think Brisbane Open House) and while travelling abroad is a commonly enjoyed pursuit, an archi-tour where architects get to visit the work of other local architects is an uncommon practice. From private homes to public bars, the doors to the prized creations of Brisbane’s architects are swung open to likeminded eyes in collaborative architecture tours. Taking an afternoon out from the daily grind, both emerging and established Brisbane architects hop between the latest finished projects of their peers to admire the lines, light and shadow, and intricate details, and to ask questions and give feedback. The Weekend Edition tagged along on one leg of a recent archi-tour to take a few snaps at one of James Russell Architect’s houses.
