Different Architects and Retallack Thompson designed a site-specific set up within the sculpture lawn on the Nationwide Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne for his or her inaugural NGV Triennial; an exhibition of global, recent artwork and design. Their thought? An “anti-pavilion.”

By means of the use of minimalism and repetition, Lawn Wall merely reframes what already exists within the lawn. Bluestone gravel pathways take you in and across the lawn via a sequence of “rooms.” Outside areas are outlined with self-supporting metal frames clad in UV yarn mesh. In most cases utilized in greenhouses, the mesh adjustments opacity, colour, and reflectivity within the daylight. Foxtail grass and eucalyptus leaves upload a cushy, herbal part to the design.
