During 2003 and 2004 Brecknock Consulting worked with a team of artists, architects, government officers, fabricators and consultants to bring together a major collection of integrated artworks for the Brisbane Magistrates Court, which is located at 363 George Street, Brisbane.

 

With a total allocation of $1.7M the project is one of the largest Art Built-in expenditures on a single project. The building was officially opened by the Premier on the 16th of November 2004 and included a total of 14 artworks that reflect the process of the legal system and engage with the architecture of the building.
