Golden Tangerine is a DESIGN Canberra signature exhibition presented by Craft ACT: Craft + Design Centre. The exhibition has been sponsored by Vibe Hotels.
Craft ACT: Craft and Design Centre is supported by the ACT Government, the Visual Arts and Craft Strategy — an initiative of the Australian, State and Territory Governments, and the Australia Council for the Arts — the Australian Government’s arts funding and advisory body.
Fresh from collecting several accolades at the Australian Institute of Architect’s 2016 ACT Architecture Awards for Interior Architecture, Commercial Architecture, and the Light in Architecture Prize, Vibe Hotel Canberra Airport is the perfect accommodation and venue partner to DESIGN Canberra 2016. Architect Philip Vivian of Bates Smart has said the project sought to reflect Canberra’s DNA, resulting in a hotel crafted specifically for its location and context: “We have created a uniquely Canberran destination for travellers to enjoy, one that will attract visitors with its timeless design combining circular and axial geometries to create a distinctive form, derived from both its context and referencing Canberra’s history. These circular geometries allow the building to be read in the round, responding to the site’s multiple approach and vantage points.”
