Australia is known for wild life and venomous snakes, but nothing architectural (except the Opera). This new installation wants to put the continent / country in the books of the surrealist building of the most itinerant photographers.
The installation of Wynyard Station (Sydney) that seems to have been removed from the “creation” and brutalized in the heart of Australia’s commercial capital conquers the hearts of Sydney citizens and visitors to the city.
Entitled “Interloop” and weighing more than 5 tons, this roof sculpture was made from parts of the old wooden escalator on the site, before being removed to make room for a more modern steel replacement . Designed by Sydney University professor of architecture, Chris Fox, it is meant to represent an interaction between the new and the old.
