In a small space architecture exhibition at the University of Sydney Tin Sheds Gallery, exhibition curators and architects, Anita Panov and Andrew Scott of Panovscott took their long love affair with plywood and turned it into an art-piece. 

Each project in the exhibition is small in scale yet big on ideas and was selected, “to actively engage in a discourse of how we can live more efficiently,” said Scott. Aptly titled ‘A small exhibition,’ it celebrated projects that economically and environmentally have improved the lives of their inhabitants within very small spaces.

Inside the gallery two structures were constructed using Ecoply plywood and finished in a striking, blue-wash. And in future months, Panov expects to see sky blue models in the architecture department as the exhibition materials are re-used by the students.

In their architecture work, Panovscott endeavour to be sensitive to the environment and efficient in design and construction, “to use structure as finish” where appropriate. Materials like Ecoply plywood (made from sustainably grown Australian and NZ plantation pine) provide that option as it’s structural and can be left raw or finished in numerous ways.
