This project brought living colour and natural cooling via installation of 3 Pop-up Parks along Crown Street Mall.
They were designed to engage with the community and visiting shoppers.
A trial of ran from mid-November to mid-February is now being further extended.
Floriade requested help to activate their festival as they wanted some new ideas to engage with their patrons.
Three major pieces of work were taken through from design, construction and install.
These included a major entrance tunnel with a themed sound and lightscape, a piazza (including fountain, seating and gardens) and a sculpture. These zones became key elements of Floriade 2018
The City Renewal Authority partnered with us to conduct a trial of the new Pop-up Parks natural grow system.
The aim was to bring living lawn and flowers to the city CBD that would provide an area for people to relax and children to play.
From our work designing the Drop-in Cricket Pitch and Portagrass Court the 2015 Floriade approached us to find a solution to increase their tulip beds coverage. We designed and developed specialised outdoor Plantaboxes.
In 2016 large scale production of boxes allowing 800m2 of mature tulips and annuals to be showcased. We then designed lifting and tilting frames.
We continue to install and maintain boxes for Floriade; the largest flower show in the southern hemisphere.
A Portagrass Court is owned and maintained by Tennis Australia. The court is used when hosting international tournaments where arenas may not have grass courts.
The court was first installed in Queensland, 2015 and has been used for tournaments in Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra.
We manage the move, install and removal of the court for each event.
