7 Nov – 17 Jan @ Council House, Perth ·
Presented by City of Perth ·

After decades of discussions, a national architecture competition attracted more than 60 entries to design a new Town Hall for the city of Perth. This result was Council House, now acknowledged as a heritage jewel which brought Perth into the Modernist age as the international spotlight shone on the city. This free exhibition reveals the story of  the competition, the controversy, and shows unique views inside the building using historic documents, films, and the latest 3D scanning.

Special opening on 15 November 2019 till 8pm as the Christmas Lights Trail opens.
