What better place for a Sydney party than the iconic Sydney Opera House?

Clients, collaborators and friends came together on the 1st of August to celebrate five years since John McAslan + Partners opened their Sydney Studio. 

Against the backdrop of Jørn Utzon’s tapestry ‘Homage to C.P.E Bach’, the guests got a sneak peek at the book ‘Making Architecture’, a survey of JMP’s work over the last three decades.

Sincere thanks to Elizabeth Farrelly – writer, columnist, academic, critic and contributor to the book – for a rousing introduction citing ‘intelligence and light’ as the defining characteristics of JMP’s portfolio. Thanks also to Dolla Shireen Merrillees – cultural historian, museologist and author – who thoughtfully facilitated a conversation with John McAslan and Sydney studio lead Troy Uleman, reflecting on the practice’s ethos of working for the public good.
