Green Ladder, Barangaroo

An architectural pavilion designed by prominent Vietnamese architect Vo Trong Nghia, of Vo Trong Nghia Architects, has been installed in Sydney’s Barangaroo. Green Ladder was previously installed in Brisbane in 2016 as part of the Asia Pacific Architecture Forum, commissioned by the Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation (SCAF) for its Fugitive Structures series. The pavilion’s Barangaroo appearance is a collaboration between the Barangaroo Delivery Authority and SCAF’s successor, the Sherman Centre for Culture and Ideas (SCCI). Made from bamboo, the pavilion comprises a scaffold-like grid structure interspersed with greenery and topped with a transparent booth. In a review for Architecture Australia, Sandra Kaji-O’Grady said the pavilion “more closely resembles a fragment of bamboo scaffolding than it does a building.” “Carefully spaced posts of bamboo bundles set up a field condition that never resolves into a room or shelter. The pavilion does not establish enclosure at its side or overhead, with the consequence that the visitor does not inhabit the pavilion so much as pass through it.”
