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’ 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. Curated by Paul Walker and Kevin Liu.

A Blueprint for Ruins reverberates with the shadows of the dispossessed within China’s urban metamorphosis.

To May 12 Tully Arnot: Soft – Tully Arnot’s practice uses robotics and the simulation of nature to explore the relationship between technology and the natural world. These artworks reflect on Arnot’s earlier research, looking at how emergent ways of being are facilitated by social media and human-robot interactions, including with AI, companionship robots and consumer level replacements of human pleasure, connection and labour.
To May 12 InProfile: Xanthe Muston – from Woolf to Carver, Shakespeare to McFarlane, Xanthe Muston employs literature as a starting point to explore surreal moments of human connection. These works are united by a shared exploration of what “home” means in 2024.
