Text description provided by the architects. This project is a development of the precast concrete construction system we developed for the Macarthur Gardens Education and Display Suite in NSW. Like its predecessor, this building is temporary, moveable & re-erectable.

The challenge was to adapt the system to a quite different context (temperature range, orientation, prevailing winds), accommodate new requirements whilst developing and testing the system’s robustness and adaptability. So far so good!
