Girthy; With Slim Edges Exhibition at Queen Vic Market

An exhibition of two young architects’ 7650-kilometre bicycle journey across Australia is on show in June.

The Girthy; with Slim Edges exhibition is the result of a dusty journey east to west across Australia investigating the architecture of our country's interior.

In February 2017 Newcastle University architecture students, Owen and Bobbie, set off on a 10-month bike trip to study the desert span of Australia’s interior. Their intention was to pedal away from the experience with an understanding of the architecture of each place they passed through and how it correlates with common Australian design.

This exhibition compiles their findings and presents an insight into the reality of Australia and its regional and remote areas.
