Forecourt mosaic, Parliament House

The integration of commissioned art and craft works into Parliament House enriches surfaces and spaces throughout the building. Artists, craftspeople and fabricators collaborated closely with the architects and the Parliament House Construction Authority in a program to design and install some 70 separate works in metal, timber, clay, glass, fabric and stone, each devised for a particular location.

 

One of the best known artworks at Parliament House is the Forecourt mosaic. You can read more about the mosaic commission here. Another is the foyer marquetry. You can read more about the marquetry commission here.
