The art of architecture: Scales of ambition: the rise (and fall) of the ‘star-chitects’ - Friday series

Friday, 25 October 2019 10.30am to Friday, 25 October 2019 12.30pm

Program: The art of architecture: Directions in gallery design - Friday series
Venue: Domain Theatre
Lecturer: Anthony Burke

The competition for audience and attention over the last 25 years has driven the emergence of the largest and most spectacular gallery projects ever built. Commissioning ‘star-chitects’ and borrowing tactics from shopping malls and airports, galleries from the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao to the Tate Modern have adapted to a new landscape of art tourism, big business and Instagram. But how big is too big? What is gained and lost in this race for scale? What is a ‘star-chitect’ anyway? This lecture presents a candid review of some the world’s largest and most recognisable gallery projects, and their architects as designers, media personalities and brands.
