Podcast - Episode 47: Bates Smart's Chris Eggleston and Johan Hermijanto talk Melbourne Design Week
This week I sit down to chat (and laugh) with Chris Eggleston and Johan Hermijanto from Bates Smart about the office's upcoming exhibition, Time + Space as part of Melbourne Design Week 2019.
The exhibition explores the design process, with a focus on the amount of time required to create space. Using the recently completed Club Stand designed by Bates Smart for Victoria Racing Club as a case study, the installation showcases a layered exploration of process and outcome.
Time + Space includes a sectional sculpture of The Club Stand paired with a timeline that provides an insider’s perspective into the meticulous approach to architectural and interior design process. The exhibition dissects both the spatial outcomes of the building itself and the project timeline, revealing the translation of vision into reality.
The exhibition will be open Thursday 14 to Saturday 16 March, and Thursday 21 to Saturday 23 March 2019 from 11am and 5pm at the Bates Smart Gallery located at Ground floor, 1 Nicholson Street, East Melbourne (entry off Albert Street).
A special evening viewing will also take place on Thursday 21 March from 6pm to 9pm that invites the public to experience the gallery after hours.
Listen to the interview to get an insight into the background behind the TIme + Space exhibition.
