Saltwater Community Centre, 153 Saltwater Promenade, Point Cook
RIPPLE (2015) – Louise Lavarack

Acquired by: Wyndham City Capital works program

About the Artwork:

The creamy white walls of the new Saltwater Community Centre evoke the local landscape. They undulate around the architectural spaces of the building, like wind-sifted sand slipping through dune grasses. The brickwork that forms these walls is articulated further in a series of meandering ‘bitmapped’ ripples that morph along the surface. This treatment is inspired by the big skies and sweeping cloudscapes that cast sun and rippling shadow across the landscape of Point Cook, and by the breeze-ruffled waters of coastal wetlands.

Materials: Bricks
