Great figure exhibition—two days left

In a bid to engage in a public discussion about architecture, Wellington-based architects KebbellDaish has produced an exhibition ‘Great Figure!’ which features models and pin-ups of three houses in Wellington, on Great Barrier Island and Mornington Peninsula (near Melbourne). Each house exhibited in the show features a key space—a ‘figure’ as KebbellDaish refers to them.

There is a veranda, a courtyard, and a pathway—each ‘figure’ has formed the basis of each design respectively. For example, the project on GreatBarrier Island was developed as part of a network of pathways that zig-zag through the regenerating bush surrounding the house. A new pathway leading up to, through and around the house has shaped the design of the entire project.

But be quick as you only have Monday and Tuesday this week to check it out.   

Where: Bowen Galleries, 39 Ghuznee St (between Marion/Cuba Sts).
