20+ Years – Forest Gallery

Continuing our reflection on projects that reach a 20 year milestone, The Forest Gallery – a living museum inserted into the Melbourne Museum is one of our favourites, particularly in terms of collaboration with a team of fabulous consultants including our long time  association with Australian native plant designer extraordinaire Paul Thompson.

We also value our on-going association with the Museum, where we are invited back every year to review the project and the plantings in particular.

This design is visionary, conceptually rigorous and a spectacular technical achievement on a very constrained site.
