Talking 'Micro-pavilions' this Saturday Aug 10

Albert from a team of architectural graduates is putting together an installation as part of this year's BEAMS Arts festival in Chippendale.

It's part of an event, called 1:1 (pronounced "one to one"), a one day design and build challenge where they will get teams of architects builders and architecture students to design and build a set of 'micro-pavilions' in a single day.

These 'micro-pavilions' incorporate seating elements but they will also be designed to function as a small planter box or herb garden. At this stage the idea is that 10 of these objects will be built and set up in a lane way as part of BEAMS festival.

Albert is proposing to donate these 'micro-pavilions' to Sustainable Chippendale after the feativeal.

Come join us on Saturday @ The House Cafe on Shepard St, 10am if you want to be involved with this project.
