The Fungi Forest project at the Symposium of Australian Gastronomy

On Monday the 5th of December I will be having a discussion with Simon Whibley talking about the The Fungi Forest Project, the ideas and discussion we have had about secular sacred spaces.

This is a part of the Symposium of Australian Gastronomy and it is an amazing event with the likes of Annie Smithers, Stephanie Alexander to name a few.

Fungi Forest Project Pavilion Gallery

We are working with Workshop Architecture to design and have built a pavilion on the site of the Fungi Forest Project to host our tour guest as well future events.This  is key part of our project although it is a few years into the future the best day to start is today.

Simon Whibley is a rather fun and exciting architect I have know for many years and I am super keen to be working on this project with him 🙂

These are some of the Concept drawings that we are rather excited about.
