supermodels 2006

Supermodels was an exhibition of 444 architectural models by Sydney architects ranging from small to large, rough to refined, literal to abstract, the prosaic to the utopian, and the unbuilt to the unbuildable.

The materiality of model making was continued in a plywood table top at eye level. All materials were fully recycled on disassembly. The exhibition was carbon neutral.

The exhibition showcased some of Sydney's most contemporary and adventurous design. Like the "directors cut", the model is often the only 3D manifestation of how the architect wanted the building to be built and quite often the only built form of an idea. We curated and gathered the models, designed and built the exhibition, catalogue and graphics. 

Assistance was given by the Byera Hadley travelling scholarship, St.Margarets and Object Gallery.
