Pritzker Prize winner Ryue Nishizawa, co-founder SANAA, Tokyo; Sydney Modern Project, introduced by Michael Brand, Director, The Art Gallery of NSW

Emerging in the 18th Century, the pavilion has been a highly significant building type in the work of major architects of the 20th and 21st centuries. The recent commissioning of the $340 million Sydney Modern extension to the AGNSW, which comprises three cascading pavilion structures, is a case in point. The temporary pavilion is now also emerging as a cultural phenomenon: the celebrated Serpentine Galleries' summer pavilions in London, national pavilions at the various Architecture biennales including Venice and, locally, the Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation’s Fugitive Structures series are some notable examples. These inventive and idiosyncratic structures blur the boundaries between art and architecture

In this special one day seminar series, including VIP international special guest, Sydney Modern architect Ryue Nishizawa, leading experts discuss the pavilion in its various manifestations, as building type and as temporary structure that that experiments creatively with form and disrupts architectural convention.

 

An exciting new commission of a major pavilion series at Barangaroo will be announced at the seminar.
