concept for a competition entry - architectural folly in the forecourt of the Powerhouse Museum, Sydney : inside the shady recreation of a cool billabong surrounded by huge, soft paperbark trees. The distance between the tree trunks in the image should be about 4m, so the pool has a diameter of about 20m. Natural filtration of course, and an opportunity for visitors to the museum to cool down.
