Panovscott present A Small Exhibition
A Small Exhibition, curated by panovscott Architects officially opens in Tin Sheds Gallery, in the Sydney School of Architecture, Design and Planning, this Thursday 10 August at 6pm. It features brilliant examples of compact housing by some of the most innovative and exciting architects working in our city today.
Participants include Nicholas Gurney, Anthony Gill Architects, Retallack Thompson, Ian Moore Architects, Takt Studio for Architecture, Stephen Collier Architects, Alexander Symes, Archer Office, Silvester Fuller, panovscott Architects, Trias, Drew Heath Architects, Durbach Block Jaggers, Breathe Architecture, Casey Brown Architecture, Architect Prineas, Welsh + Major Architects, Peter Stutchbury Architecture, Tribe Studio Architects and Brad Swartz Architect.
The collected projects demonstrate how design innovation can radically increase dwelling amenity within exigent situations to allow the development of a smarter and more agile notion of the home. This burgeoning redefinition of what a house may be is an essential ingredient in the answer to the housing affordability crisis facing many Australian cities.
In the gallery space we are two striking blue structures. The first will display photographs and drawings of the projects, whilst forming a 1:1 scale replica of Nicholas Gurney’s 27-square-metre studio apartment, which will allow a visceral experience of the radical size of the project. The other structure is a forced perspective viewing apparatus in the manner of Borromini’s Palazzo Spada, which will hold the collected project models and highlight the perceived and actual sizes of each project.
