Summer Architecture Commission of the National Gallery of Victoria

The National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) in Melbourne, Australia has unveiled its inaugural Summer Architecture Commission designed by John Wardle Architects. The pavilion, which takes up temporary residence in the backyard of NGV International, is a the first in an ongoing annual series of architecture commissions.

The pavilion is made from a steel grid shell, which is a 19th century structural system, but here it’s been modelled using 3D programs in order to optimize the design of the structure. It is also designed for fast assembly with all the components made off site and installed in just 10 days. Spanning 21 metres and standing at 9 metres tall, the pavilion arches over the NGV’s garden like a half dome. A field of 1,350 hand-folded pieces of recyclable plastic is fixed to the underside of the grid shell and provides a gleaming pink shade from the sun.

Wardle said the colourful elements that adorn the inside of the pavilion are inspired by the great ceilings in Melbourne’s landmarks such as the Great Hall at the NGV and the Capital Theatre by Walter Burley Griffin and Marion Mahony Griffin.
