Text description supplied through the architects. Designed for Transurban and positioned within the Melbournes Art precinct on an inaccessible highway off-ramp island, this primary sculptural set up supplies an built-in manner of art work paired with habitat. Solar panels energy supply some electrical energy for lights, hen bins supply safe haven for natural world,
Steel mesh has been integrated into the bureaucracy in order that the plants can “take over” and the web page has been closely planted and no longer available to most people. Our intention at the venture was once that the bushes and planted panorama will sooner or later develop up and across the sculptures in order that they grow to be a part of the panorama versus being the important thing function. Sort of relics within the bush.
Habitat Filter includes a collection of ‘pods’, the biggest over 25m top, with a variety of sustainability components together with specifically designed nesting bins for birds and bats, sun panels to offset midnight lights power wishes and the usage of recycled fabrics in building.
