The Australia Gardens Shelters were an opportunity to engage with one of the nation’s most unique landscape projects, recent recipient of the WAF Landscape Project of the Year. This is Australia's only botanical gardens to feature solely Australian native plants. In contrast to most Architectural commissions, the architecture responds directly to the landscape context both conceptually and physically. In fact, the landscape was most completed when the architectural process began. The designs for the structures explore notions of what shelter is and the history of shelter from its most primitive forms to the more contemporary vernacular.
