Info

Under the canopy of Corps à Corps in the courtyard of the IMA, Ashley Paine and Susan Holden (University of Queensland) and Dirk Yates (Speculative Architecture) will discuss the widespread fascination with architectural pavilions and their proliferation in the Australian context, ranging from high-profile public structures to institutional commissions and urban interventions.

While these structures often share a common scale and temporariness, they also accommodate a wide range of agendas and audiences. They also increasingly present occasions for art and architecture to meet. This conversation will consider some of the issues raised by the contemporary pavilion phenomenon and the evolving place of art in contemporary architectural practice.
