A soaring nine metre-high pink pavilion adorned with 1350 hand-folded fuchsia-coloured blooms, has been revealed by John Wardle Architects at NGV International.
September 29th, 2015
The pavilion will flood visitors in glittering, kaleidoscopic pink light as they stand under an 18 metre-wide translucent canopy of origami-like folded polypropylene, regarded as the world’s most sustainable and recyclable material (commonly used to produce Australia’s polymer banknotes).
The Summer Architecture Commission is a new annual project at the NGV which invites designers and architects to produce an ephemeral structure or installation for NGV International’s Grollo Equiset Garden.
Inspired by the Sidney Myer Music Bowl, the ephemeral structure has been designed in Collingwood, assembled in Laverton North and built in Melbourne – resulting in an entirely Melbourne-made pavilion.
The 2015 Summer Architecture Commission: John Wardle Architects is on public display from 24 September 2015 – 1 May 2016. During spring and summer, the pavilion will play host to live music performances, panel talks, kids’ activities, picnics and more.
