2016 Architecture Commission

The NGV Architecture Commission is an annual open competition which asks architects to consider innovative ways to activate one of Melbourne’s great civic spaces, the Grollo Equiset Garden. Competitors are encouraged to offer a unique response to the site, explore new propositions about architecture and design, and demonstrate innovation in material use, fabrication, sustainability and recyclability.

Led by the NGV’s Department of Contemporary Design and Architecture, the inaugural Architecture Commission was presented for the first time in 2015 by John Wardle Architects, who designed an exuberant pavilion of steel, timber and hand-formed textile elements.
