The sculptural piece is intended to bridge the gap of
art and architecture, by providing a unique public
space people can interact with.
The sculptural piece aims to target the issue of urbanisation
and densification of a modern city. The
artists wish to bring the public a spatial experience
of an ever growing city to a human scale.
The issue of densification is a reality all modern cities
are faced with, however the artists believe this
may not always be a bad thing. A flourishing country
such as Australia has the capability to progress
further through the cultural and physical change
densification and urbanisation brings.
The question remains on how we decide to complete
this task of urbanisation. With any form of change it
will bring social instability. As architects it is our job
to be problem solvers. Therefore he artists believe
the architect holds a unique role in the future development
of a city.
The piece is intended to be metaphorical portrayal
of the modern day city. It’s intended to bring the city
down to a human scale, it provides a procession for
the audience to walk through. The cylinders are to
indicate the change in the built environment Sydney
will be seeing in the next 50 years.
Some of the cylinders will be lit with up-lights and
on the lower end of the pavilion the cylinders can be
used as seating.
The pavilion/sculpture piece is intended to be used
as a public space. Ideally situated in the heart of
Martin Place, however not limiting it to this location.
The elongated form should entice a crowd
within and provide a place of both intimacy and
overbearing as you progress. A city laneway would
be another ideal location for the sculptural pavilion
The artists believe that this piece will engage the
audience in a unique manner and provide an intriguing
spatial experience to anyone who decides to
