UnCover Video: Behind-the-Scenes of the Design Canberra Pavilion

UC Associate Professor of Architecture, Max Maxwell, and a team of UC Architecture students built the centrepiece pavilion of the Design Canberra festival with the help of half a kilometre of cardboard tubes, a robot arm called URI, computation and plenty of people power. Come behind the scenes to discover how this incredible structure of futuristic design was made. The "Dark Crafts Pavilion" will be housing Design Canberra activities—from events to yoga—throughout the festival until 24 November in Civic Square, Canberra City.
