Australian architecture will be in full bloom at London’s world-famous Chelsea Flower Show in May, where Melbourne-based architecture firm, Studio 505 has designed a complex architectural structure.
Their work will form a key element of the ‘Trailfinders Australian Garden presented by Fleming’s’ entry.
It has been designed specifically for the Queen’s height (as it is hoped she will visit the Australian garden as part of her tour of the event) and relies on geometric accuracy to create a visual illusion of floating within the garden when standing inside the structure at just the right degree.
This is the final time the Trailfinders Australian Garden team will present an Australian Garden entry at the Chelsea Flower Show, and it is hoped that by bringing together a team of highly skilled architects, builders, designers and other collaborators that this garden will leave no stone unturned and well and truly put Australian landscape design squarely on the map for years to come.
From Chelsea, the structure will then travel to the Chinese National Flower Show where it will form part of the $500,000 Australian Pavilion within this 2,000,000sqm Show.
Studio 505 director, Dylan Brady discusses the firm’s vision behind their creation for the Australian Garden entry below.
