Jacaranda have entered into the 20th Australian Timber Design Awards for the Standalone Structure.
The submission is for John Wardle Architects “Somewhere Other “
Somewhere Other is a timber structure that resembles a large cone clad in spotted gum. Jacaranda brought to life the exhibit, Somewhere Other at the Venice Biennale Architecture Exhibition in 2018 and then transported and reinstalled at the National Gallery of Victoria in March 2019.
In collaboration with John Wardle Architects, Jacaranda was involved in the design buildability and the construction process. The extensive shop drawing designs had to incorporate the service components of Somewhere Other whilst maintaining the structural elements and integrity.
Somewhere Other is a bold structure that allows the viewer to experience different views and angles across the timber, mirror and steel construction. It is a portal that is used to establish a connection between building and their context.
