Summer Place

Summer Place is an experimental architecture project, held in QEII Square in the heart of Albury’s cultural precinct.

Summer Place aims to engage the community in new ways with our public space, as well as providing architects with the opportunity to experiment and be creative with urban design.

Now in its second year, Summer Place 2019 has been designed by CHROFI Architects.

The design takes its inspiration from the agricultural industry in the region, experimenting with the same mesh that horticulturalists use to reduce  evaporation, and damage from sunlight and storms. Agricultural systems may be hectares in size, with relatively little material used.

Summer Place 2019 highlights the current climate emergency, and the increasing stress this puts on the landscape and urban environment. The project aims to stimulate a conversation about how we use our public spaces, in particular, how we adapt to increasing heat waves and drought.

CHROFI Architects is internationally recognised with a legacy of projects that are embedded in place, that solve structural urban problems, and celebrate the coming together of people, culture and life.

Summer Place 2019 has been short listed in the NSW Architecture Awards for Small Structure.
