Architecture and design are set to hit the screen at the new ArchiFlix Festival opening in Sydney this week.
Highlighting the unique creative spirit that drives the disciplines, the inaugural event will feature a range of documentaries on the careers and practice of some of the most prominent Australian and international architects.
There’s nothing like watching a film outdoors. The fresh air, the starry sky – it’s a magical experience. But imagine watching a film where not only are you outside but you are immersed in an island paradise floating peacefully on the water. That’s the experience the audience gets when attending Archipelago Cinema, taking outdoor cinema to a whole new level.
We love modular homes and modular design at all scales. We love it when a module is small and can fit in our hands like the life-sized modular building blocks used for building pieces of furniture. And we love it when modular goes large – like the 30,000 square metre modular exhibition space proposed for the Beijing Horticultural Expo.
Architecture studio Penda has revealed plans to create a vast network of modular building blocks forming a wooden village of exhibition space in Beijing.
Looking for a fresh creative outlet? Satisfy your creative urge with Archidoodle – an architectural ‘activity book’ that presents a building, landscape or part of a building and encourages you to complete it in a new and interesting way.
The book is filled with beautiful pen and ink illustrations depicting some of the most iconic, contemporary and inventive structures. Aimed at anyone who loves drawing buildings and modern homes, each page contains an incomplete architecture-related sketch, which you as the reader-turned-artist have to finish off yourself.
At Modscape, we’ve developed an innovative, efficient and environmentally-friendly way to build, via modular homes and prefab homes.
We draw on modular and prefabricated design and building techniques and, with flexible systems, we can create any amount of space you require for your home.
What is a module?
A module is a section of your home. It is made from fully welded structural steel frames and structural insulated panels (SIPs). The modules are combined onsite to make one complete home. Building in modules allows us to easily transport our modular homes in Australia.

Every now and then we all crave a bit of peace and quiet, a chance to get off the grid and escape to somewhere tranquil and secluded. Feeling tired of civilisation? Here are 10 secluded buildings from around the world that we would love to visit.
Earlier this month we installed a stunningly simple weekender at Mt Macedon.
The two bedroom/ two ensuite retreat was constructed out of four modules and has a large deck running along its length – perfect for watching the sun set over the beautiful ranges.
This short video shows the one day installation. More detail about the project, including a floorplan and photos, will be on our website in the coming months – so watch this space.
Building modular is not a new concept. And while building technology has come far and we have greater flexibility in design, every now and then it’s nice to reflect and appreciate the exemplary pioneers.
Modular building Habitat 67 in Montreal, Canada celebrates its 50th anniversary this year and one of the apartments has undergone a beautiful interior renovation that we love. The redesign is fresh and crisp yet remains sympathetic to its iconic brutalist origins.
Modscape worked closely with Calvary Health Care and Erilyan to construct additional patient rooms for their St Luke’s Hospital in Launceston, Tasmania.
The hospital chose a modular solution to enable them to quickly meet their increasing accommodation demands. Minimal time spent onsite meant less disruption to the day-to-day running of the hospital. The construction was completed in 8 weeks with the modules being installed in one day. A further 6eeks onsite and the rooms were ready for new patients.
