Following the inaugural Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences (MAAS) Architecture Commission in 2018, entries are now open for the 2019 MAAS Architecture Commission as part of Sydney Design Festival (1-10 March 2019).
The 2019 MAAS Architecture Commission will be a feature of the Sydney Design Festival, an annual celebration of design at venues across Sydney from 1 – 10 March 2019. In 2019 the MAAS Architecture Commission site will be the forecourt of the Powerhouse Museum, a location that offers the awarded designers an opportunity for high visibility through museum visitation and heavy traffic along Harris St Ultimo. The installation will be on view on the Museum forecourt for the duration of the festival.
Architects and designers are invited to design a temporary installation or structure that responds to the site and explores the potential for architecture to address complex issues, including those of environmental sustainability, access and inclusion through collective design.
