Pavilion to link river and city

Tuesday 31 August 2021
Designs have been unveiled for the 2021/2022 Summer Place pavilion in QEII Square.

Designed by local architect Carly Martin, See the Forest will celebrate summer in our region with a focus on the Murray River and the shady trees it provides.

The ephemeral architecture will be the third Summer Place installed in the square.

Designed to encourage discussion about our local environment and sustainability, See the Forest, will be fully installed by November.
