Designing a structure for creative thinking

Ten University of Tasmania Architecture students have been working with renowned Sydney architecture firm, Cave Urban, to design a temporary structure for Dark Mofo, Tasmania’s mid-winter festival.

The structure, called The Hothouse, will take three weeks to erect, will be in situ for the duration of the festival, 12-22 June, and be deconstructed after the event.

I'm trying to make this look like a machine, like the way that the minds work... so the people that are thinking in this place... will have this kind of heat and look like a brain machine or something like that
