Fugitive Structures 2015

This architectural laboratory is full of bright ideas for the future.

Two exciting and experimental new installations from emerging architects will be opening at Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation in August. The Fugitive Structures program is all about exploring the possibilities offered by small-scale shelters. With a focus on innovation in urban contexts, this is the third iteration of the annual series.

Sway is the product of Tel Aviv architecture collective Sach and Reicher + Muller with Eyal Zur. Filling the gallery’s Zen Garden, they have created an impermanent fabric structure, which will commemorate the Old Testament tale about the Israelites sheltering in the wilderness en route to ‘The Promised Land.’

Cross-disciplinary Sydney artists Hugo Moline and Heidi Axelsen will be presenting Owner Occupy (until October 3), a back-to-the-beginning take on Australia’s housing affordability crisis. Five interactive shelters will be set up as temporary dwellings; however, in a move that cuts out the real estate market middle men, you are only entitled to the space you can physically inhabit.

This architectural brainstorm is bound to inspire some socially engaged thinking about where and how we live. Hopefully these works will stimulate a timely discussion around the precariousness of our living situations, as well as the assumptions underpinning our drive to own property.
