Sealite Pavilion

Melbourne Docklands
Felicetti provided Structural Design and Supervision

The Sealight Pavilion is a site-specific installation that responds to the Docklands’ past and present. Made of reclaimed timber, Sealight amplifies the natural phenomena of sea and sky – the most captivating amenities of Docklands – and poses an alternative urbanism for the area in both scale and experience. Opened in November 2011, Sealight is a collaboration between Monash University, Rintala Eggertsson Architects, Grimshaw Architects and Places Victoria. Second- and fourth-year students of the Monash University Department of Architecture designed and constructed the pavilion with guidance from Sami Rintala and Dagur Eggertsson, Damon Van Horne from Grimshaw Architects, Robert Held, structural engineer Peter Felicetti, and Monash lecturer John Sadar.
