Westbank has evolved into a cultural practice and this exhibition offers a glimpse into a new and interesting part of our world. 'Fight For Beauty' is yet another way we are attempting to express our evolution and share our journey, while describing the enormous effort we continue to pour into our ongoing fight for beauty.
In 'Fight for Beauty' we are attempting to encapsulate the architecture, artistry, design, fashion and city-building initiatives that have come to define our practice. Inside you will see public art projects undertaken with world-class creatives, architecture from architects who are artists in their own right, fashion by some of the greatest designers in recent history, a custom Fazioli piano designed by an architect to respond to the typology of their building. Each of these works demonstrate in a profound way that a craft practised well, is an art form.
We hope you enjoy seeing some of what we're most passionate about at this moment and that you are able to experience some of the influences that are leading our practice in new and exciting directions.
