These are some picnic shelters in Coogee designed by Blacket Smith in 1999. Amazing little structures, that are formed directly from the site. By taking various connections between exisiting points and extending them, or creating new ‘lines’ on the land, folds were created and the shelters twist and distort according to these invisible lines. The recycled materials, and general rawness of the structures are amazing, and are perfect for the setting. The undersides of the shelters spell out the names of them in giant fluro orange supergraphics. The seating, tables and barbecues are just as good. There is a nice harshness to the structures, which reflects the nature of the position. There is a great conversation between shelter and surrounds.
