The Art Factory


The Art Factory (TAF)

The Arts Factory is an artists guild formed from students at UTAS. TAF wanted to create an environment to showcase work and encourage public interest in new art and required a venue that reaches out to the wider public in a way that draws attention to their endeavors. FORMplay designed a sequence of exhibition spaces with refreshment and toilet facilities and public space in the form of a roof garden and hard-landscaped area. The main structure is formed from recycled and refurbished shipping containers and adorned with distinctive lighting and branding identity to draw people to the The Art Factory environment.



FORMplay Architecture were the catalyst for creating a vision that symbolized our intent for The Art Factory concept.
