Project 16: Now at Heide
If you missed the stunning Crescent House at SCAF in 2013, you can now view our inaugural Fugitive Structures pavilion at Heide Museum of Modern Art, Melbourne. Crescent House has been permanently relocated and is on exhibition now.

Relocation supported by McCorkell Brown Group and International Art Services.
Andrew Burns: Crescent House was the inaugural project in Fugitive Structures, a series of four annual invitation-only competitions aimed at emerging and mid-career architects who are asked to design a small-scale temporary pavilion for SCAF’s Zen garden.
Presented in collaboration with BVN Donovan Hill, the Fugitive Structures concept references London’s Serpentine Gallery’s highly successful Architectural Pavilion series in Kensington Gardens.
Andrew Burns is principal of Andrew Burns Architect, the practice he founded in Sydney in 2008. In 2011 he won the international design competition for Australia House, a gallery and atelier that forms part of the Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale in Japan, selected by a jury chaired by Tadao Ando from a field of 154 entries. Andrew is currently Co-director of the Super Sydney Project and member of the Sydney Architecture Festival Committee.
‘The pavilion has an ambiguous presence, between architecture and art object. Through framing, it transforms an ordinary rose apple hedge into a landscape of beauty. The structure responds to elemental themes: darkness and light, the wonder of the night sky, the arc of the sun and the presence of bushfire on this continent.’ Andrew Burns (2013)
A full-colour catalogue published by SCAF accompanies the exhibition and includes a conversation between Andrew Burns and James Grose, Principal and National Director, BVN Donovan Hill.
