A conversation about homes that connect cultures
Kevin O’Brien is founder of Kevin O'Brien Architects and principal at BVN. Kevin comes from Brisbane and identifies as a descendent of the Kaurareg and Meriam people of north-eastern Australia. Kevin O’Brien Architects is merging with BVN and with it comes a complex body of work based on the understanding that an idea is required in order to pursue genuine architecture. For Kevin, that idea is “Finding Country.” Kevin developed the idea of “Finding Country” in an exhibition that was shown at the 2012 Venice Architecture Biennale. It addresses the questions of urban settlement and territory, questions that Kevin has pursued through four spheres of action: profession, academia, creative practice and community service.
