This showcase surveys the career of the Sydney & Harvard-trained architect, arguably Australia’s most globally influential.

From the megastructural Scarborough College in Toronto of 1965 to the high-tech pods of Intelsat HQ in Washington, DC, 1988, via a series of key projects in Australia, Andrews’s designs were remarkable. But in the face of postmodernism’s rise his fame quickly waned. Andrews, however, remained committed to modernism: design should make the built world better for everyone.

Organised through themes including Geography, Urbanism and Sustainability, the exhibition features period drawings, images and documents, with new photographs by Noritaka Minami.
