Queensland Cultural Centre Conservation Management Plan

Queensland Art Gallery

The Queensland Cultural Centre is located at South Brisbane and comprises the Queensland Performing Arts Centre, Queensland Art Gallery, Queensland Museum and Queensland State Library. It was constructed between 1977 and 1988 in four stages. A fifth stage, The Playhouse Theatre, was completed in 1998. The complex was designed by leading Queensland architect Robin Gibson.

Part of the site was entered on the Queensland Heritage Register in June 2015.

In 2015 Arts Queensland subsequently commissioned a conservation management plan for the site. Conrad Gargett were awarded the commission and I was part of the team that researched and produced the CMP. It was a challenging but fascinating task. The highlights of the place are numerous but one feature that cannot go without reference is the watermall in the Art Gallery.
