Did everyone else really enjoy Open House Perth? I had a great weekend, visiting different buildings and exploring parts of the city. It was wonderful to see so many members of the public out and about, checking out different places too. And this was in bad weather – imagine how many would have been out in fine weather? All the volunteers at all the places we went to were great, and seemed to get everyone through easily and happily, even when getting close to the end of the day on Sunday, when I’m sure everyone must have been exhausted. Really great event. My only complaint maybe that I didn’t have time to see everything! But at least I have a few to check out next year. Some of my pics from the weekend:

Yesterday was a fun day. I built a bar. That’s right, I built a functional beverage serving bar for Perth’s latest creative installation. 1:1 is a project that ‘aims to create a collaboration between architecture students and professionals as a way of building relationships and forming a creative discourse’. Check out the time lapse video from 1:1 in Sydney last year.
