The Light Shed

Client: The Fortynine
Architect: The Fortynine
Status: Complete

The Light in Winter Festival at Melbourne's Federation Square brings together artists, designers, and architects from both local and international origins. During the month-long festival, Federation Square played host to an array of light sculptures that were inspired by a design brief that called for the creation of shed-like structures. The Fortynine design studio responded to the design brief with the Light Shed - a cocoon like, illuminated structure that echoes organic forms to create both a shelter and viewing platform for passers-by. The Light Shed was constructed from structural plywood timber sheeting that was pre-cut and delivered to site for assembly. Enstruct contributed expertise in structural analysis and design to ensure the Light Shed was capable of resisting environmental loads, whilst staying true to the designer's vision for the sculpture.
