the silo project

Developed by Urban, in conjunction with The NGV and Melbourne Design Week are pleased to house The Silo Project exhibition in the former Terry’s Burnley Brewery and soon to be the Burnley Maltings Townhouses.

 

FROM FRIDAY 19TH MAY TO SUNDAY 21ST MAY

 

The Silo Project is a group exhibition housed in six former grain silos at the soon to be redeveloped Burnley Maltings site. The exhibition responds to the unique site it is housed in and forms an architectural intervention to a soon to be restored monolith.

Implications of material obsolescence and industrial labour, urban “renewal” and gentrification and our collective response to the built environment are all suggested.

All of the works are informed and specific to the historic site whilst also presenting new and experimental design strategies and future proposition. In this sense, the abandoned site provides an exit or dream space and an inversion of the meaning of silo as verb, where rather than working in isolation, collectivity and creative fluidity is implicit. There is a focus on lighting and object design but also an interest in more ephemeral and conceptual design practices.

Contributors include: Ancher Architecture Office, Ashisha Cunningham, Bel Williams, Billie Civello, Billy Horn, Bolaji Teniola, Brody Xarhakos, Caeylen Fenelon-Norris , Corey Thomas, Darcy Jones, Danielle Brustman, Edward Linacre, Elliot Bastianon, FOMU Design, Josee Vesely-Manning, Kiki Ando, Marlo Lyda, Marta Figueiredo, Meagan Streader, Naomi Clayton, Pascale Gomes- McNabb, Simon Ancher, Volker Haug.

This exhibition has been made possible by the generous support of Developed by Urban, EST Lighting and Melbourne Design Week.
