Fugitive Structures is an annual architectural initiative aimed at emerging and mid-career architects run by the Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation (SCAF) in association with BVN Donovan Hill.   Open to a select group of entrants, the winner is given the opportunity to create a small temporary structure in the Gallery grounds in Paddington, Sydney; the result hopes to engage a wider audience into architectural consideration.

The Fugitive Structures concept references London’s Serpentine Gallery’s Architectural Pavilion series in Kensington Gardens which began in 2000.

2014 sees the second offering in the Fugitive Structures initiative with Sydney based AR-MA at the helm with their winning entry (pictured below).  Tomahawk // Archer Breakspear will hold a temporary installation to complement AR-MA's pavilion.
