50th Anniversary
& Banking Chamber

Reserve Bank of Australia, Sydney

To mark the Reserve Bank of Australia’s 50th anniversary in 2010, FRD developed an exhibition concept that showcased and interpreted the RBA’s extraordinary collection through a series of temporary installations.

The first installation 'Reflections of Martin Place' makes use of the RBA’s extraordinary photographic archive, a collection that records the establishment of the national institutions of the Commonwealth Bank and the Reserve Bank in Martin Place. The photographs are developed as large format images and are fixed directly to the glass panels of the foyer. Lit by sunlight during the day, and a sequenced lighting installation at night, the dynamic installation is entirely reversible and can be removed without detrimental affect to the building fabric.
