The project exists on two scales. At a local scale the design responds to the need for increased cultural amenities for the local population of m, which comes in the form of a series of detached pavilions, each providing separate parts of the program. On a larger scale, the project attempts to address the broader issues throughout Latvia in its post-Soviet Union context. Reference points are drawn to key cultural and urban landmarks in order to allow Karosta to reach out to the rest of Latvia and throw off the stigma of its Soviet past. The design responds to This Stigma manifesting itself in the form of a concrete wall that divides the site. This wall is broken upon entry by the lines that reach out toward Latvia creating a procession of moving from Karosta’s Soviet past, into Latvia’s future. These lines of reference inform the geometry of the masterplan creating a gesture that is not explicit but rather, it allows for moments when views, to and from the site, shift and align as one interacts with the built form. The new intervention reinterprets its surrounds, creating a new landscape and taking the materiality found in the existing urban fabric and reinterpreting them. The concrete, steel and glass of the apartment blocks are inverted in order to create a series of light emissive pavilions. Instead of dominating the landscape, the cultural centre will appear to ‘emerge’ from a new landscape. The built form interacts at a human scale and the scattered pavilions create a formal square as a place for Karostans to gather. Memory, Place and Identity all form key parts of this design response, The intention is not to reinvent Karosta, rather it is the amalgamation of its people, its past and its place, not only in relation to Liepaja but Latvia as a whole.

ERRIBEE -

If we look at Werribee from a critical viewpoint, identifying the unique qualities and prospective potential becomes clear. The river meandering through the city centre acts as a green artery, adjacent to the central commercial hub, it serves as the focal point for Werribee’s urban heart surgery. The eastern section of the city is defined by local government infrastructure & a future development zone. The western edge enclosed by the river and recreational precinct allow for a new axis to be created between the two. This major axis is further strengthened by redirecting Werribee’s major entrance along this central axis which improves ones sense of arrival. Werribee is noted as being restricted by dividing elements such as the train line and the Princes Highway. This has lead to a city that is unable to realise the potential of connecting civic precincts with the periphery and isolating opportunities with regards to urban farming approaches. Three engines were identified as major driving forces for the regenerative process they are: connect, gather, feed. By improving transport hierarchy and allowing greater accessibility for pedestrian traffic it allows for a greater utilisation of public spaces to proliferate. Any growth is aimed at centralising population increase so that the outlying farmland can remain as such. This will be further strengthened by the creation Of a wetland eco tourism and farmers coop, creating a basis and means to support a growing population.

The Plug-In Social Hub seeks to create a dynamic resource centre for social enterprise and not for profit organisations. Each organisation purchases a resource pod, which plugs in to the western facade along Spencer Street. The whole site has bee been considered as a single floor plan with the intent of improving Donkey Wheel House’ operations as a philanthropic organisation. The pods situated on the west facade are fully relocatable allowing organisations the ability to have direct access to the community in which they operate. The west end of Melbourne’s CBD lacks any functioning public space. The Plug-In Social Hub allows for a public ground floor with access to auditorium facilities and programmable public events. Due to its proximity to Southern Cross station, the project also exists as a gateway to Melbourne for international guests arriving from the skybus. In this way the Hub immediately connects on a Regional access via Southern Cross local, regional and international level. Swan Hill

what if donkey wheel was the hub for social enterprise, not for profits, ngo’s not only for melbourne, not only for victoria but at an international level? what if an organisation of 3 people could share an office space with larger like minded organisations, a sharing of ideas space and resources. what if regional victorians could come to this hub and set up an enterprise under the DW trust, learn the ropes and get career advice from people doing the same thing. then leave and take that knowledge back to his or her community. whilst Dw trust does not want to be in the lime light it is important for the organisations that operate under their umbrella have a high level of community interaction. this cannot be achieved through an office and most Vcertainly cannot happen in isolation.

thoughts on DWH


what if there pods that could detach from the building giving these organisations a physical presence within their local community.

The craft of an object is something that I am very passionate about. The consumption of any material be it a new or recycled material is something that should involve a high level of consideration. The bedside table is an exercise in exploring the possibilities o f a s i n g l e s h e e t o f p l y w o o d . U s i n g a C N C r o u t e r, a s i n g l e sheet of 19mm ply was cut and arranged to allow for all of the pieces of assembly with the aim of having zero waste. The lamp is the result of a dumpster diving mission and uses local limestone and cypress timber to form a warm and natural palette. Fundamental to these explorations is an understanding of m a t e r i a l i t y. E a c h m a t e r i a l h a s d i f f e r e n t q u a l i t i e s t e x t u r a l l y and visually and this understanding is fundamental to all design disciplines
