Vacancy/No Vacancy?

Urban Islands 2006 – 2016

'Vacancy/No Vacancy?', Urban Islands 2006 – 2016 presents a collaboration of work from Urban Islands guests.

  • Laurent Gutierrez and Valérie Portefaix from design studio MAP Office
  • Jill Stoner, Director of the Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada
  • Shaun Murray, practising Architect and Director of architecture firm ENIAtype.

Our four guests explore architecture and related themes through a variety of non-conventional media and techniques, sharing an interest in issues of urbanism and ecology. The exhibition showcases some of their recent research and projects through drawings, audio/video installations and sculpture.

The exhibition will run parallel to Urban Islands 2016, an independent cross university program hosted by the University of Sydney, bringing renowned architectural practitioners from around the world to Sydney's Cockatoo Island.
