Join us at the Powerhouse Museum for a discussion with TRIAS architecture firm – the first appointees for the MAAS architectural commission.
TRIAS Architects Jennifer McMaster, Casey Bryant and Jonathon Donnelly will join Peter Denham, Director of Curatorial, Collections and Exhibitions at MAAS to outline the thoughts and philosophy behind Four Periscopes, the stunning Turbine Hall installation.
The firm were named by Wallpaper* magazine as one of 2017’s top 20 emerging practices from across the globe and have established a leading industry reputation, built on the back of their 3 studio principles: to produce buildings that are solid, simple and beautiful.
The installation Four Periscopes consists of multiple towers – evocative of Sydney’s skyscrapers – filled with a series of periscopic mirrors suspended above the ground, inviting visitors to look up inside them. The reflections connect people from the balconies to the ground floor and from one tower to another.
Visible from a number of levels of the Museum, TRIAS’ winning work is a playful installation evoking curiosity, encouraging interaction and inspiring engagement.
Made possible by a generous donor, this new, three-year annual commission offers emerging and established architectural and design talent the opportunity to design and present innovative projects for the unique Powerhouse Museum Turbine Hall site.
