Event description

Description

Emerging in the 18th Century, the pavilion has been a highly significant building type in the work of major architects of the 20th and 21st centuries. The recent commissioning of the $340 million Sydney Modern extension to the AGNSW, which comprises three cascading pavilion structures, is a case in point. The temporary pavilion is now also emerging as a cultural phenomenon: the celebrated Serpentine Galleries' summer pavilions in London, national pavilions at the various Architecture biennales including Venice and, locally, the Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation’s Fugitive Structures series are some notable examples. These inventive and idiosyncratic structures blur the boundaries between art and architecture.


SESSION 1: 11:00 AM–12:15 PM

Professor John Macarthur and Dr Susan Holden, University of Queensland, ‘Pavilion Propositions’

SESSION 2: 12:15 PM–1:15 PM

James Grose, BVN Architecture Studio, SCAF x BVN Fugitive Structures Series

Fugitive Structures was the first series in Australia to explore the potential of temporary pavilions as tools for experimentation, and for testing new concepts and construction techniques. BVN partnered with the Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation (SCAF) for five years to support the exhibition of their architecture programme: ‘Fugitive Structures’.


With special thanks to Pavilions event partners Barangaroo Delivery Authority, The Art Gallery of NSW and the Australian Institute of Art History.
