Insitu Collaborative are a group of young and aspiring designers, architects and engineers. The group are based at Australia Street Studio in the inner west of Sydney and are exhibiting an architectural pavilion labelled “confluence” at this year’s Vivid.
The group are questioning how young architects and designers can make an impact in the competitive industry of architecture and design. They believe the traditional avenues of working after study are antiquated and they limit creative ambition as they slave away to the system. They believe in taking action outside of the working environment by not limiting themselves to the tedious nature of the workplace, in seeking similar minds alike to create and transform the nature of this industry.
Their current exhibition “confluence”—displayed at this year’s VIVID—will be an ephemeral architectural pavilion using simple construction techniques blended with a unique design process. They are using CNC routing through basic materials to create an open structure which can be interacted with through a forest of columns. This light weight structure is an experiment in seeing whether simple design combined with modern tools can create a unique and interesting spatial experience for the public.
Be sure to visit the pavilion located at First Fleet Park next to the MCA during Vivid this year!
