Terracotta Warriors – Art Gallery of New South Wales

Richard Johnson of JPW Architects was appointed as the exhibition designer for the newly opened exhibition at AGNSW ‘The First Emperor’. JPW were greatly honoured to be included in this unique exhibition of the ‘Terracotta Warriors’ and were extremely happy the Barrisol installation.

Two galleries use the reflective benefit of Barrisol high gloss black (Noir Tulip) acting as giant seamless mirrors, with two 14 x 2.2mtr walls on each side of the warriors giving the effect of an infinite army and a 12 x 2mtr suspended ceiling over three bronze birds and a chariot create a perfect reflection of the artefacts.
