Plastic Palace in QEII Square

Saturday 15 December 2018 to Sunday 03 March 2019

Australia is facing a plastic waste crisis. With China no longer accepting Australia’s mixed recyclables, local waste management facilities around the country are stockpiling recyclables while a solution is sought.

Albury Waste Management Centre alone receives four tonnes of hard plastic per week. Where will this plastic waste end up? Can people possibly recycle it all?

Murray Art Museum Albury has commissioned award winning architect Raffaello Rosselli to design and construct an experimental structure to stand in QEII Square over the summer period.

Plastic Palace highlights the current hard plastic recycling crisis, by transforming 20 tonnes of plastic into a temporary structure that engages the local community in this critical conversation.

Plastic Palace is the first project for Summer Place, an annual experimental architecture series commissioned by MAMA, and held in QEII Square.
