An installation of stone, a story of water, a place of convergence.
Archrival, a collaboration between Custom Mad and Lucy Humphrey Studio, designed the pavilions as a pair. Sitting opposite each other, the pavilions are illuminated at night, the glowing polycarbonate facade offering a way through the park.
Parry Park, like many sites in Western Sydney, was a place of early colonial invasion of Dhurug Country. Today, the site is a contaminated floodplain, so honouring and repairing Country through collecting, reusing and restoring water became a focus for the project.
Between the pavilions sits Rise, a finely crafted sandstone sculpture by Yuwaalaraay woman and artist, Lucy Simpson, created in collaboration with Archrival and Copy Nature Office.
