Issues of design versus construction had to be overcome by the winners of the 2019 Brick Bay Folly competition, architecture and planning students Leo Zhu, Dorien Viliamu, Daniel Fennell and Wenhan Ju.
The Wood Pavilion is made of 419 pieces of 90 x 45mm stained timber and is designed to demonstrate the intersection of architecture and sculpture.
Team leader Leo says creating the folly was a steep learning curve for them.
“Designing versus constructing is quite different and this was the team’s first experience at attempting to construct a project of this size,” he says. “Pretty much every day, we were presented with a new problem to solve so our plans would change daily.” Photo by Sam Hartnett.
