The Palladian Skirt
We are very excited to share that we recently got our creative juices flowing and TPG prepared two submissions to FORM's upcoming event: PUBLIC PLATFORM 2016, Perth's own prototyping festival. The event will be hosted in the Claremont Town Centre over the 2-3 April weekend and will involve 25 different installations or 'interventions' in the street that will encourage people to interact with their environment and play in the street. This will be among other highlights in the town centre, such as performances and food trucks that will activate Claremont and bring the town centre to life.
The two submissions were lead by a team of enthusiastic TPG-ers, who were then lucky enough to have one of the submissions selected. This is quite an honour as only 25 submissions were selected out of a total 60+ submissions received by FORM. The selected submission is known as 'The Palladian Skirt' and will enable people to come together and thread all sorts of materials through a solid giant skirt frame. This will see the eclectic skirt form and take life over the weekend, and will be designed to allow people to stand within the skirt structure and pose for quirky photos, encouraging people to take part in and then share their experience through #tpgpalladianskirt hashtag.If you would like to be kept updated and see The Palladian Skirt come to life, please check out our Instagram account @tpg.wa over the coming weeks. Stay tuned for more details, and pencil in 2-3 of April to visit PUBLIC PLATFORM in Claremont. You can access more information via FORM's website here: Palladian Skirt
