G. W. Pestorius

Eblin Drive and Beyond

Eblin Drive and Beyond is the first monograph on Brisbane architect, Geoff Pestorius (1930 – 1968). It focuses on his spatial tour-de-force, the Sweeney House (1966) in the inner-Brisbane suburb of Hamilton, although several other projects are also featured, including his Mt Tamborine House (1965) for the same client.

Also included is documentation of the exhibition 50: Drewe & Pestorius’, Sweeney House, curated by Andrew Wilson, in the stairhall/gallery space of the house in 2016.

It also features a genealogy that sheds light on the architect’s family origins in Germany, as well as a comprehensive listing and bibliographic entries relating to exhibitions and events held at the Sweeney House since 1999, when it became a house for exhibiting contemporary art from Brisbane, from Australia and from around the world.

Lavishly illustrated with an imaginatively embossed cloth bound cover, this seminal publication includes essays by Andrew Wilson, David Pestorius and Jonathan Kopinski.
