Emotional Connection. Curated by William Smart and Abbie Galvin.
Angelo Candalepas graduated from the University of Technology Sydney in 1992. He was made a Life Fellow of the Australian Institute of Architects in 2019.
In 1994 he established his own architecture studio which, in its first months of practice, won an international competition for housing in “The Point” in Sydney’s Pyrmont. The project was the recipient of several awards. Since then, Angelo has won and been shortlisted for several national and international competitions.
Angelo’s honouring of great architectural influences – Kahn, Scarpa, Corbusier, and the more local Murcutt and Madigan – has seen his work develop a personal stamp upon the Australian landscape; one that attempts to support ancient values within a contemporary practice.
Angelo’s work has been acknowledged both in Australia and internationally in exhibitions, journals and publications, as well as on television and radio.
