Adelaide Contemporary Art Gallery, 2018, 1:200
Hassell and So-Il’s response to the brief for the Adelaide Contemporary Art Gallery competition showed a sensitivity to light and porosity. The physical model was used as a tool to highlight the effects of a mesh facade interacting with the multipurpose gallery spaces within. A uniform palette of the building in all-white, emphasised the effects of dappling natural light landing within the scheme, which drew from the team’s inspiration of light interactions found within nature. This was done by literally opening up the model in two halves to create a powerful reveal of the section slices of the building within and the greenery surrounding it.
