In 2017, two architecture students, Owen Kelly and Bobbie Bayley embarked on a 10 month Architecture journey by bicycle from the east to west coast’s of Australia. Right through the middle of the country, they called this unprecedented journey, The Grand Section.

Attempting to learn what they believe is largely ‘left out’ of their education, Bobbie and Owen pursued to understand their own country and its architecture to be able to design buildings to better suit the driest inhabited continent on earth.

Stopping for one week in 19 places, the duo would engage with locals, document and analyse the place, the buildings and how and why people are living the way they are. At the end of the week they would present back their findings to the communities they stayed with in the form of an exhibition, sharing what they had learnt, seen and studied.

This exhibition accompanies recent work created by the duo looking at the bigger place, the whole of Australia. This work offers an interactive exhibit to better understand our own country.

Don’t miss out on seeing this interactive Australia centric exhibition.
