National museum of australia new centre
Arterial won the opportunity to design and develop a new centre at the National Museum of Australia in Canberra, which will open its doors to children and their carers in early 2020. The new centre connects children with stories and objects that represent the full facet of the Museum’s Collection. The design offers a voyage of discovery for children, where they can explore, have fun and learn through play. As well as an innovative play space, there is a mini makers space that offers changeable creative learning opportunities for young audiences and a programmable workshop space designed for older children and visitors of all ages.
Camberwell Grammar Junior Playground
The themes of the playground were led by the children themselves, providing the design team with a framework to work within. The result was an immersive landscape with two ships, stacked crate structures and water-based landscaping that has transformed the playground of Camberwell Grammar Junior into a unique adventure experience.
National Arboretum Playscape
Arterial was commissioned by Taylor Cullity Lethlean, the project landscape designers to conceive and detail play and interpretive elements for a forest-focused children's play scape. Primarily imagined as an adventurous natural environment catering to a wide age group, the emphasis was to be on having fun while discovering and exploring themes around forest life.
