Top five things to do this week: MPavilion, Mozart and more

  • The Australian Ballet ends its 2015 season with a world premiere of artistic director David McAllister’s first choreographic work, The Sleeping Beauty.
  • Typical of Brink Productions’ immersive theatre experience, the play, set in the fictional suburb of Barranugli, unfolds in an atypical stage installation resembling a cemetery.
  • A baroque masterpiece that has been part of the company’s repertoire for 42 years, Australian Ballet has succeeded in finding new life in Sleeping Beauty and was aided by a generous $1.5m budget.
  • Paul Blackwell and Kris McQuade star in The Aspirations of Daise Morrow, a new Australian play based on Patrick White’s acclaimed short story, Down at the Dump.
  • The pavilion is made up of 13 large and 30 smaller petal-like shades, supported by four metre high columns.

    New technology is revolutionizing the way buildings are designed and how the public can be engaged in the process.


Construction considerations

  • In some instances, these kerbs are substantial enough to support the construction layers but, in other instances, in my opinion, they are not.
  • Due to cost pressures in the industry and the competitive nature of the sports construction industry, these kerbs might well not be offered as part of a design solution.
  • This, again, is a good example of where thorough research beforehand can start to bear fruit during the construction process.
  • Incidentally, it is a useful technique if precise engineering calculations are required for the drainage system as part of a planning condition.
  • I have seen a design solution recently that has a recycling emphasis that relies on water movement into a specially developed kerb/drain.
