Interchange Pavilion by Studio Chris Fox is a meeting place where tracks converge, a place of interchange where paths cross. Peeling from the ground plane, geometries arc overhead to create an embracing volume; a point of confluence. Drawing inspiration from the precinct’s rail history, artist Chris Fox worked with the salient geometries of the railroad switch; the point at which a train can change its course, moving from one trajectory to another. The work is a tribute to the diverse stories and journeys of people connected with the Eveleigh Rail Yards.

Opened 25 August 2020 at South Eveleigh Sydney, Interchange Pavilion combines 15 tonnes of robotically moulded glass reinforced concrete, 1400 pieces of router cut hardwood and 250 metres of stainless steel ground rails. Studio Chris Fox designed, modelled and managed each component of the project with a computational workflow. The unique material palette is supported by a 14 tonne structure made up of 1650 pieces of digitally fabricated aluminium to create a 350 square metre public art installation.
