DAB LAB exhibition: Offshore Studio_1001_OPI

April 5, 2011

An exhibition of Offshore Studio’s collaborative project with UTS Architecture students, revealing the design for a new planetarium in NSW.

This exhibition running at the Faculty of Design, Architecture and Building at UTS showcases the design proposal for a new planetarium for New South Wales.

The design scheme for the 2000sqm centre has been drawn up by architecture practice Offshore Studio in collaboration with UTS Architecture students and staff. The planetarium, called The Southern Skies Earth and Space Centre, is a contemporary observatory due to open in Orange, NSW in 2015.

The triangular-shaped low structure is designed to fit neatly into the site without disrupting the surrounding landscape, and features a 20-metre cantilevered roof over the entrance.

Three UTS students: Tony Ho, Sally Hsu and Regan Ching have worked alongside Lecturers Anthony Burke and Ben Hewett on the project, as part of their Masters of Architecture degree.

Offshore Studio is an architectural research practice directed by Anthony Burke, and Ben Hewett, former Senior Lecturer at UTS and currently the South Australian Government Architect. Offshore Studio explores the nexus of material agency, new technologies in design and their translation to built form.
