Melbournes metropolis is a series of buildings lingering in constructed concepts of usefulness and vacancy.
Faced with the impetus of space evolution and then necessary space regeneration, Space Re Place offers conceptual and built alternatives to otherwise disused and disregarded built environments.
Cast from a select group Melbourne designers, Space Re Place plays with adaptive re-use framed within the static basement of one of Melbournes rare Venetian gothic-inspired buildings.
The exhibition, a feature of this years State of Design festival, will include new work from developing architects Nicholas Ashby and Andrew T. Møller, film and sound artists Giles Simon and Julia Atkitson, graphic designers Andrew Kupresanin and Belinda Chen, landscape architect Marti Fooks and furniture designer Nicholas Gardner.
Opening Friday 17 July 6-9pm
18 31 July, open Mon-Sat 11am-7pm
Location: Donkey Wheel, Basement, 673 Bourke Street, Melbourne (enter from Godfrey Street)
