Under Threat: Queensland Cultural Centre
by Robin Gibson, Australia
"A new Government Master Plan, released days after his death earlier this year, proposes a myriad of commercially-driven alterations and additions that will irrevocably alter the buildings both internally and externally. Additionally the Master Plan proposes the construction of a pair of 30 storey towers over the site."
The Australian Institute of Architects (Queensland Chapter) has made an application for the Queensland Cultural Centre (Robin Gibson Buildings ) to be included in the Queensland Heritage Register, still "it is vitally important to reinforce the application by making submissions of support to the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection (DEHP)".
Please help by signing and sending the submission letter below by email to email@example.com, until Friday September 19 and spreading the news.
