Macquarie University Campus Common

Fabritecture was contracted for the design & construction of a series of 11 container-mounted architectural awnings to cover a new temporary dining area for students. The design comprised of 6 market structures, 1 larger ‘main’ structure, and 4 awning structures.

Each market structure was designed as a single unit, so that they could be adapted and joined to cover larger areas. All structures sit on top of stacked shipping containers, connected through bolted connections to allow for easy dismantling in around 5 years at the end of use.

This project is an innovative example of how fabric architecture can be designed as an aesthetic, versatile and practical solution to almost any application. 17001
