Last Days of the AAA Fundraising Campaign

1909 a0

We are in the final days of the Australian Architecture Association's annual Keep Architecture Open fund Raising campaign. This is your last chance to enjoy one of the fabulous rewards we have on offer for your generous donation.

As a not for profit organisation, run predominately by a group of committed volunteers, the AAA depends on the support of our members and the wider community of design enthusiasts to meet our operational costs for continuing to open the doors on architecture.

We are passionate about promoting and educating people about the value of architecture and design. We believe that the more you know and appreciate about design, the greater your say in the way our environment is shaped for the better.

HOW CAN I SUPPORT THE AAA?

You can simply donate to our campaign by clicking here.

Enjoy a private tour led by local architect Ben Gerstal for up to four people to a contemporary house in Castlecrag by Engelen Moore. 

The discreet street presence disquises the proportions and design of the house, however, upon entry, three connected pavilions are revealed, creating courtyards in between. You will see the use of ‘the pod’ celebrated in bright red in contrast to the neutral and natural surroundings. 

Available dates and time:

  • 3pm Saturday 12 October 2019
  • 3pm Saturday 19 October 2019, OR

Reward yourself with an original artwork by Australian print artist Craig Couzens.

‘Metropolis I’ is a collagraph print that explores how individual form unites to create the rich tapestry of a city. This is an anonymous city, yet its layered skyline evokes a sense of familiarity. We ‘read’ the city in its context with nature, in this case how the brilliant light of a sunset picks out individual details.

Craig Couzens is a print artist based in the regional NSW city Wagga Wagga.

Passionate about elevating the profile of fine art printing, his work is produced using archival inks and paper.

Craig’s work has been exhibited in a number of public group shows, as well as in successful solo exhibitions in 2017, 2018 and an upcoming solo exhibition on 25 October 2019. His work is included in numerous private collections in NSW, Victoria, South Australia and Queensland.

Artwork Details:

  • Artwork Name: ‘Shadows and Shapes’ (U/P) Edition of 3 (signed by the artist)
  • Art Type: Collagraph type
  • Printed on Fabriano paper (230gsm)
  • Print Size: H 220mm, W 350mm
