shanghai pavilion

Here’s a pic of what Wood Marsh are up to in Shanghai for the upcoming expo. The government PR article it came in on makes nary a mention of the architects, as SA PRESIDENT pointed out in Twitterland. As Stuart Harrison said on the Architects radio show on Tuesday (after a visit), this one refers strongly to Wood Marsh’s 1990s ACCA building in Melbourne.

proves that some people don’t know shite from clay.
well done.

ACMI felt lame – but ayers rock with a disco inside has grown on me over time.
