The UQ Architecture Lecture Series Update

We know that many of you have been eagerly awaiting an update on this year’s architecture lecture series. We apologise that things have been a little quiet from our end but we promise that it is for good reason! While we still have a few secrets and surprises that we can’t quite share yet, we are very excited to announce the following:

  • This year’s series has been renamed the “UQ Architecture Lecture Series“¬†to better reflect the valuable role that the University of Queensland plays in bringing these amazing speakers to Brisbane and sharing them for free with our State Library audience.
  • This year’s series will run for 10 consecutive weeks every Tuesday night commencing on the 9 April 2013 and concluding on the 11 June 2013. The previous events scheduled for 12, 19 and 26 March have been cancelled. If you have booked in for these events via Eventbrite you’ll be contacted via email shortly in regard to the cancellation. We deeply apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused but we promise¬†the wait will be worth it!
  • The events will commence with free drinks and nibblies from 6pm with the lecture kicking off at 6:30pm.
