Mona Heavy Metal Retaining Wall and Oyster Mausoleum. Project led by Ross Brewin and Kit Wise from MADA (Monash) and created by students.   A rammed earth wall to represent the indigenous soils of Tasmania topped with crushed dolerite. Striations formed by recycled concrete, crushed oyster shells and black oxide. When the oysters used to filter the toxins from the Derwent River die they are encased in concrete or resin and inserted into the mausoleum wall. Photo Bo Wong // Design Satellite

An underground bar... why not...!!!  @ MONA (Museum of Old & New Art - Hobart Tasmania Australia)

The architecture at MONA just north of Hobart is breathtaking regardless of your opinion of this outstanding private collection. An underground bar cut deeply into the earth. @ MONA (Museum of Old & New Art - Hobart Tasmania Australia)
