Shigeru Ban’s cardboard trees sprouting up at Powerhouse Museum, Sydney

The new Powerhouse Museum forecourt enclosed with tree structures made of reinforced cardboard tubing, designed by internationally renowned architect Shigeru Ban, is well underway in Sydney.

Shigeru Ban and architecture firm Toland are behind the museum’s $4.3 million revitalisation design, which is due for completion later this year.

The project brief was to create an ‘open museum’, an exciting new entry experience and to reconfigure the museum’s exhibition, educational, workshop, function and public spaces.
