BLEACH FESTIVAL

Chris Knapp has spent the past several weeks organising and leading a team of students (now alumni) of the Bond Architecture program to design and implement the "String Pavilions" for the 2nd annual Gold Coast BLEACH FESTIVAL at Coolangatta. The project forms the central architectural element for the festival hub at Queen Elizabeth Park.  The team also developed the site master plan to organise the festival infrastructure.

The team developed the pavilion design originally in a workshop led by AR-MA during the final semester of 2012 at Bond - part of a design studio entitled "Five Civic Architectures for the Distributed City."

The festival runs from 22 Feb to 3 March 2013. See you there!
