Buhrich House II, Castlecrag. Photo by John Gollings.

House – the 50th anniversary of the Hugh Buhrich House in Castlecrag Past Event

Presented by Brickworks

In 1991 Neil Durbach and Cathy Lassen created an exhibition and publication about the Hugh Buhrich House II in Castlecrag with photography by John Gollings.

The first line of Peter Myers’ text in the catalogue states, ‘I believe that Hugh August Buhrich’s 375 Edinburgh Road Castlecrag (1968-72) is the finest modern house in Australia.’

2022 will be the 50th anniversary of the completion of that house so, we will re-create an exhibition and catalogue to showcase how great that house is to a broad public audience.


Stephen Varady

Stephen Varady is a respected Sydney-based architect, writer, competition advisor and educatorwho has also built a reputation as a tireless architecture advocate. That advocacy has resulted in the re-creation of this exhibition and catalogue.

Neil Durbach

Neil Durbach is a director of Durbach Block Jaggers Architects with Camilla Block and David Jaggers. Together they are a practice committed to search for the possibilities of architecture itself – its power and poetry; its pleasure and necessity. They work within the parameters of appropriateness and innovation, subscribing to a sensibility of sensitivity,  seamlessly integrating landscape and architecture. Neil has recreated the original catalogue for this exhibition.

John Gollings

John Gollings is a photographer specialising in the built environment and is considered one of the most interesting of Australia’s architectural documenters. Characterised by strong formal composition but with a didactic, and wider, contextual viewpoint, Gollings brings the technical resources and craft skills of a very experienced photographer to a discipline which often lacks either a point of view or the ability to express it. John has reproduced his original photographs for this exhibition.
