Visit a prototype of a multipurpose portable shelter made in response to Melbourne’s housing shortages and skyrocketing rents.

Dates: Monday 27 July – Saturday 22 August

Plans for the shelter include; an exhibition/performance space, a children’s playhouse and a pop-up shop. Artist Dylan Martorell will build a sonic garden inside the shelter consisting of fungi, water plants and field recordings. Sunday Morning Designs have created a multipurpose waterproof textile that will function as a canopy for the structure. The textile, made up of patchworked re-used market bags and tarpaulins, will also be used to create different domestic products inside the space such as lamps and cushions, providing a further sense of comfort and protection from the outside elements.
