Fremantle Biennale 2019

Undercurrent. Water movement is the theme of the 2019 Fremantle Biennale.

Water is sustenance for life, and for centuries it has been a phenomenon for philosophical reflection.

The essence of water is flow. Considering both physical and ephemeral phenomena, our design is derived from the natural forces that generate ocean currents (gravitational fields, weather systems), the aesthetic characteristics of water’s movement (ripples, streams) and its interaction with light (reflection, refraction).

As an ongoing conversation, the meaning of undercurrent can also flow, shifting from water movement under the surface towards the expression of arising tensions in a social setting.

Our pavilion explores ambiguity by inviting us to enter a ‘water booth’ where visitors will be surrounded by a liquid surface, both immersive and permeable. Inside, we will be able to see glowing sunsets through diffused wall surfaces, track the path of the moon in the sky and touch the waves.

With_Architecture Studio is a design-led practice deeply committed to delivering creative, functional and beautiful spaces. We apply a rigorous process of inquiry and analysis, looking beyond the brief and challenging convention to discover something unique that will yield engaging experiences and create value for client and community.
