As you enter the Festival Hub, look up and wander through the Echidna Arch. The arch was designed and fabricated by Architecture students using several emerging digital technologies, including a laser scanner, a robotic arm and a CNC router. The plywood structure is designed to be flat-packed and is assembled without any mechanical fixings. The pyramid cells are formed by a robotic arm gradually applying pressure to a flat sheet of aluminium.

The archway will be installed in Prince’s Square throughout the festival.
