Adelaide Festival Club, Adelaide Pavilion, 2020, 1:500
Designed as a temporary pavilion to home various events in the heart of Adelaide over the next several years. The structure draws from the neighbouring Elder Park Rotunda. The circular form was constructed using resin which was frosted to represent the curtain like skin that in reality, comes alive at dusk with projections and lighting techniques. A solid timber base was carved for CO-AP well before the design was finalised so that the team could test various iterations of the pavilion before locking in the final design which we then moulded and fit to the existing base. The large context buildings located on each side of the model were made with removable slots to allow the audience to experience the design from all angles both with and without the existing site obstructions. Natural model trees were used to softly blend the solid wood base to the translucent structure.
