Andrew Burns wins 2013 Fugitive Structures programme

The Australian equivalent of the Serpentine Pavilion series held at London’s Kensington Gardens has announced a winner: Andrew Burns. Hosted by BVN Donovan Hill and Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation (SCAF), Fugitive Structures is an annual invitation-only competition for emerging architects to design a temporary pavilion to be constructed at SCAF’s Zen Garden in Sydney.

Andrew Burns said of his winning concept: “The pavilion has an ambiguous presence, between architecture and art object. Through framing, it transforms an ordinary rose apple hedge into a landscape of beauty. The structure responds to elemental themes; darkness and light, the wonder of the night sky, the arc of the sun and the presence of bushfire on this continent.”

Dr Gene Sherman AM, Executive Director of SCAF said: “Fugitive Structures refers to a new creative endeavour fashioned around the work of architects from Australia, the Asia Pacific region and the Middle East and will deliver an original, modestly scaled and compelling space in the centre of our busy city.”
