DESIGN ISLAND 2009 - 'GOD IS IN THE DETAIL'

























"This exhibition focuses on the work of seven Tasmanian architectural practices. Each practice is given the opportunity to re-create at a true scale an architectural detail from a built project that is of particular relevance. In doing so you will address the brief “architectural thresholds” related to the Design Island theme, Design at the Edge."

Curated by Peta Heffernan and Sarah King

Our construction detail investigated a fa├žade treatment, in a series of 3 free standing vertical timber panels.

Each was intended to explore concepts in lightweight, sustainable, economical construction, utilizing domestic methods in a low cost commercial application.

Each panel, approximately 400mm wide and approximately 2400mm in height, comprised rough-sawn plywood cladding stained in a colour matrix inspired by the colours of the site and its context.
