The public don't strictly need a monument or an activity to be drawn to different locations around a city, and while the Sealight Pavilion may embody some element of both of these, it really has an attraction all of its own. The project was taken up by students at Monash University as a way to help revive an overlooked area of Melbourne, Australia.

With support and inspiration from Rintala Eggertsson Architects and Grimshaw Architects, the young designers established enclosed environments. Through occupying the space within these curious-looking wooden cabins, situations are created in which tourists and locals can repose, take refuge and gaze out over the Docklands.

The four-walled shelters were made from reclaimed timber, inside and out. The Sealight Pavilion affords an experience from its interior and delivers a divine view in itself when observed from a distance.
