Bin Dome
National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, 2013

Temporary installation of a geodesic dome at the National Gallery of Victoria for the Melbourne Now exhibition. Designed as a social space for events, meeting up with friends, and shelter from the summer sun, the Bin Dome draws upon Melbourne’s history of experimental architecture and utopian thinking to create a generous public space within the gallery. It is constructed out of 1,000 Ikea rubbish bins.
