The square pagoda is an intricately carved timber temple, constructed with a two-tiered brass roof. The building features carvings of deities, mythical creatures, scenes from the enlightenment of Buddha, inscriptions and carved wooden screen.
In 2019 Conrad Gargett were engaged to repair and conserve the original brass roof on the Pagoda. After three decades, the roof sheeting and structure (which was always intended to be temporary) was showing signs of deterioration. The roof of both the main pagoda and the smaller pavilions have been restored with a new timber substrate and brass sheeting, to match the original detail. The new roof has an improved waterproof detail, ensuring the building can be enjoyed by visitors to Southbank for decades to come.
