Clear acrylic panels from Allplastics Engineering were
incorporated into a striking public art installation in Barangaroo, Sydney. Located
in Sydney’s newly developed north-western edge of the CBD, the Barangaroo precinct
will be a showcase of art and culture for public enjoyment.
The Green Ladder display is a collaboration between
Barangaroo’s Delivery Authority and the Sherman Centre for Culture and Ideas. Originally
commissioned by the Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation in 2016 for the
Architectural Pavilion series ‘Fugitive Structures’, this installation by Vo
Trong Nghia uses bamboo to represent sustainable and green architectural
Allplastics Engineering supplied custom cut 12mm thick
clear, understated acrylic panels for the contemporary art installation.
Having experimented with bamboo in their buildings, Vo
Trong Nghia’s architects are incorporating other facets of nature into their
practice including concepts such as natural ventilation in residential
commissions as well as urban or vertical farming through educational projects.
