The People’s Choice Award for the recent Advertisements for Architecture exhibition has been announced with Marcus White’s ‘Architecture – It’s not just for Wankers’ (which I’m pretty sure I voted for) taking out first prize.
Marcus was followed, in second place, by Rebecca Daff’s ‘Your Architect’ and, in third and fourth places respectively, by Matt Ross Goodman’s ‘Three’ and Adrian Lo’s ‘A Vision for Tomorrow’.
Taking inspiration from Bernard Tschumi’s 1978 “Advertisements for Architecture” and in light of the current Global Financial Crisis openHAUS has again looked at the idea and asked for contributors a number of months back. Now those contributions are available for viewing at Federation Square for a very limited time. In fact the exhibition opened on the 28th September 2009 and will close on the 02 October 2009, so be quick.
