(A Pavilion that Breathes)
NGV Architecture Commission
Seeking to make the invisible visible, (This is) Air is a large-scale outdoor installation for the NGV 2023 Architecture Commission as part of the Triennial, developed in collaboration with ENESS.
The breathing pavilion is a study about matter, time and connectedness, a spherical form using air as a building material. Breathing a total volume that matches the consumption of one human across one year, the dynamic structure is a call to reconsider our relationship with the air.
Celebrating the cultural, ecological and political dimensions of a shared atmosphere, these insights present a small archive including artists and projects whose research has inspired NB's journey; through the invisible, ethereal, and vital element of air.
