Previous Exhibition – DESIGN Canberra 2020

Designed in Italy, Made in Australia –
the Australian work of Pier Luigi Nervi

Tuesday 10 Nov – Friday 27 Nov 2020

Pier Luigi Nevi was a world-famous Italian structural engineer and architect who was celebrated for his innovative “Nervi System”. This design aesthetic has been adopted for use in buildings worldwide; in Australia the highly-awarded architect, Harry Seidler, incorporated Nervi’s style in aspects of buildings such as the Australia Square Tower and Edmund Barton Building, Canberra.
This exhibition uses drawings, 3D models and archival material to tell the story of this successful international collaboration.
