NGV Triennial 2020 Outdoor Pavilions

Shortlist – 2021

BoardGrove Architects


This collection of pavilions was designed for the National Gallery of Victoria’s 2020 Triennial summer outdoor dining program, and operated in two states. Predominately they were used as picnic pavilions and for a month, coinciding with the Triennial Extra Festival, they operated as formal dining spaces. They are human in scale and offer an evocative experience as they carve out a special place for picnicking and dining within the garden with their low canvas roofs, long tables, glowing lights and elevated decking.
