Tour of Campus Landmarks

The University of Queensland St. Lucia Campus in Brisbane, Australia has unique and symbolic carvings etched throughout their campus’ buildings.  While the Saint Lucia Campus already has an app tour of their campus, UQ Walking Tours, they wanted to show the beauty and importance of these carvings in a walking tour app to share with their community and the world.  The UQ Carvings App was created using the App Builder Website and depicts more than 1,000 carvings located throughout the scenic campus.


The App

The UQ Carvings App for iOS and Android gives users an inttimate look into the beautiful carvings featured throughout The Great Court area of the University.  The Great Court was designed to be a modern take on the European quadrangles of monasteries and universities.

The UQ Carvings App tour is organized by building and shows the various areas with carvings along with a caption.  Users can get walking directions to each building and encounter the rich carvings first hand.  Now visitors can not only see each carving in the UQ Carvings App, but they can locate them on campus and better understand the significance of each carving.  Download the UQ Carvings to experience this beautiful space.

Art Tour, Los Angeles, California

The Brewery Artwalk is a twice annual open studio weekend at the worlds largest art complex in downtown Los Angeles. The Artwalk takes place in the Spring and Fall, 11:00 am – 6:00 pm

THE EVENT:
Admission and parking are free. Come and support LA’s finest artists, take home some great works and dine at the on-site restaurant. Open studios are spread across the Brewery’s 16 acre campus including a few multi-story buildings. If you are inclined to see it all, we suggest you come both days.

HISTORY:
The creation of the Brewery Arts Complex began in 1982 at the site of the Pabst Blue Ribbon Brewery. With the passing of the Artist-In-Residence code, artists could rent live/work space in industrially zoned buildings.

In July 1997, the LA Weekly called the Brewery “the world’s largest artist-in-residence community” and in a March 1999 Los Angeles Times article The Brewery was quoted as the “world’s largest art complex.” These are true lofts, in industrial buildings that are a part of what has become a uniquely vibrant and creative community

THE APP:
Download this free app to enjoy a self guided tour of The Brewery’s 16 acre campus, which includes information about many of the Brewery’s historic buildings as well as a list of open studios in each building.
