Bot Pod

Austin Maynard Architects como Arquitectos

AMA have been approached to design a portable pod-shelter to be used by the Volunteer Garden Ambassadors within the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne.


The aim of the project is to: - Enhance the onsite experience for visitors to the RBG Melbourne - Showcase the Royal Botanic Gardens landscape as an outstanding botanic garden and promote appreciation of good garden design - Increase visitor understanding of challenges and opportunities for gardening in a dry climate and inspire positive action - Provide accurate and timely information to meet visitor needs.


The Bot Pod is a simple recycled timber crate with a roof garden. It can be towed throughout the gardens and quickly unfolded to define 3 linked activity zones.
