Lure In this project, my design intention was to create a connection that links Greville Street, Prahran Chapel Street area and the surroundings. I believe that Greville Street has a unique characteristic within this area, while it tends to be neglected by the visitors. To achieve ‘connectivity’, I am proposing a set of street installation, to integrate the rich cultural characteristics of Chapel Street with the Greville Street, therefore inviting more visitors into the street, increasing street recognition and activating the street as a whole. As part of the Chapel Street commercial area, Greville Street once was well known for its retro boutiques. The important factor in the street is the unit, which mostly are detached 1-2 storeys ranging from 18th century to contemporary. A total lack of uniformity is always the rule; the mixture of styles and materials contributes to the richness of the street. This cosmopolitan strip contains various amazing shops, colourful fashions, eclectic gifts, book stores, CD records and jewellery shops.


However, after several visits in this area,

006


In an attempt to overcome such difficulty that Greville Street faces, a set of street lighting installation is designed to facilitate the street. This design aims to lure more people to come in and explore the amazing shops on the street. On one hand, through a series of researches, which are based on public, street art and installations, I found the most successful ‘attention grabbers’ are those decorated in bright colours with a unique form or a shop selling an outstandingly fun idea.

007


On the other hand, prior to fabricating the lighting system, a mapping study model of Prahran area was made. By identifying the important points within this area, which are from both public transportation and commercial aspects, each of these points were connected to Greville Street on the map; following 3 steps, an interesting triangle-combined pattern was created eventually .

In order to convert this pattern from 2-D version to 3-D form, all the shops on Greville Street were categoried into five specific types: fashion retail (pink), restaurant/bar/cafĂŠ (green), hair/ beauty salon (blue), music/book store (orange), and the others (yellow).Each of the type is indicated by a particular colour.

Apart from being a street decoration, the colors of the installation give visitors subtle information of where the stores are. During the night time, the lure balls will be switched on, becoming an even stronger attraction, by coloring the air above the streets, creating a vivid atmosphere within. The visitors will then likely follow the weaving lines of the lights, through which Greville Street attracts people from the main street, keeping the streets connected. As additiional elements to the local context, this facility will work as a physical connection between Greville Street and its surrounding areas, inviting more

Box Hill is a multi-cultural, colourful and enthusiastic suburb in Melbourne. It has a history over 150 years and there are so many amazing historical events happened in Box Hill It would be great to assemble everything in one place and show them to the residents from Box Hill and other suburbs. Centro Box Hill is in the centre of Box Hill and it is a transportation hinge and a huge shopping centre. My idea is to install a pavilion on the main street in Centro Box Hill to achieve the design purpose, and also apply the culture and historical features of Box Hill to the design in order to attract more people.

017


018


To create a pavilion that contains the cultural aspects and historical features, a timeline would be considered to be used as the key connection. Over 100 years’ history from 1900 to 2009 of Box Hill will be divided into several parts (1920, 1945, 1980 and 2000) that represent the special features of Box Hill.

Different kinds of materials and forms are used according to the different time periods of Box Hill, tessellated tiles, timber, hole proof fabrics, etc will be used in the project. A concept layering the material one by one follows the timeline to combine them together. For the main part of the design, the timeline will be used and layered one by one throughout the whole building.

019


A scheme of simplicity and detailsing goes through the design. At the same time, the pavilion has the function of creating a better walk flow and walking experience for people. People will have fun when they walkking through the pavilion.

By designing this pavilion, Centro Box Hill will be a very interesting place for people to visit and whilealso providinge the convenience for the residents in Box Hill. It also contains the cultural aspects and mixes them together in order as one educational piece for the visitors to educate people.

Isaac Newton discovered that if one shines a white light through a glass prism, the light refraction inside the prism would generate a rainbow on the other side (Curious Minds, 2009). A prism, like the “RMIT Triangle� is a three-dimensional space, and like a prism, the space exists as an area of transformation. 025


Site

The brief of this project is to discover a place where it is not functioning properly. Thus, based on the current condition, a transformation is required to enhance the place. This place is accidentally found in the RMIT city campus, which is named “RMIT Triangle�. It is an awkward space that has been created as a result of the juxtaposition of three buildings on the RMIT campus. This is an open space (for most of its part) and contains within it, irregular walkways in which its users have to zig-zag through.

In terms of the layout of the site, a slight alteration is applied on the current condition by considering the problems. The ramp has been removed from the central position, which aims to direct all the traffic flow to the irregular walkway, in order to reduce the sound level and the distraction of the open space to a minimum. A new and permanent ramp is placed in this walkway.

029


The long wooden bench is replaced by a collection of comfortable triangular-shaped chairs. During the design development process, we recognised the fact that the space was an outcome of pure accident. We decided that the accident could become spaces for the furniture, and it would only be appropriate for the pieces of furniture to be triangles of different forms and sizes. Therefore, an experiment was conducted, which was intended to create some ‘accidents’. A variety of triangles were made out of paper and dropped into the space to mimic an accident. This action repeated until we got the most ideal result we expected.

030


031


The over head shelters are also in triangular shape and permanently fixed on the surrounding walls, in order to allow the space below to be fully protected from the natural elements. In order to guide the rainwater to an appropriate direction without affecting the users, each of the panels is adjusted into a specific angle, and overlapped. Moreover, by taking this advantage, primary colours are adopted for the panels, since the secondary colours will be created while they overlap.

032


033


The third and very subtle part of this project is the secret concealed in the brick wall. Inspired by the “light and shadow effect” projects/ street installations, a number of triangles will be randomly placed on the brick wall. During day time, the trick could barely be revealed to the users while the shadow of the text “one and more” will only appear when the light projects from underneath at night time. This element emphasises the idea of “occasionality” once again. The general colour of the painting around the sculpture would change according to the artificial light that would be used to create the effect.

Bio-railway Station Since the earliest times transport has given rise to particular architectural forms. Architectural and urban forms are generated as part of the transport systems (bridges, tunnels, roads, streets, runways, harbours). Theyhave also created unique building types, warehouses, tollgates, depots, stables and more). This design project aims to explore architecture in the service of transport, and will explore imagery, form and movement as it seeks to develop innovative design solutions for some of the emerging transport needs of the 21st Century. Bio-railway station Transportation is one of the most important tools to connect people with the world. In terms of a metropolitan city, railway system works as a basic infrastructure delivering the most people from one place to another. If the entire city could be seen as a human body, the railway network could be the flowing system of the body. Thus, all the railway stations play the role as ‘cells’, which link together and ensure that the body function smoothly.

arter Japanese architecture, originally influenced by Chinese architecture, and then integrated their own culture and the Western influences within to form a new distinctive architectural language. The history and profound meaning of the Japanese architecture are always valuable to explore and study. Prior to start designing this project, a clear understanding of the Japanese Machiya house is needed in the aspects of history and architectural manner through a series of researches and analyses.In order to understand the essential concepts and ideas inside the design and construction of the Machiya house, I sought for the different factors that were behind the process of the development then adapt the advantages to the future Footscray sustainable residential design.

Rather than adopting the flexible partitions inside of the building, the ‘sliding’ concept could be applied outside. A sliding wooden fence is designed to enable the flexibility of the sharing space in the whole community.

In most of the circumstances, the middle courtyard of each house is the private area and separated while the fence is closed. Once the resident wants to have more interactions with the neighbourhood, the courtyard will become a common space, and is connected with the next door by sliding open the fence.

066


067


In order to reinforce the concept of ‘green living quarter’, a ‘plant box’ wall is introduced as a part of the design element to decorate the west external wall. The plant box wall could absorb the heat from the Sun, moreover to make the views of outside more enjoyable for the inhabitants.

Based on a series of research and the user centered design, I believe that what the patients desire in terms of hospital is a welcoming place and somewhere they are able to feel calm and comfortable, rather than a traditional, institutional and cruel place. To achieve this goal, I am proposing a hospital arriving and waiting area with a collection of the supplementary components, for instance reception, nurses station, consultation

Since this conceptual model embodies the problem existing in the waiting area, what I did in the next step was to find out a pattern, which would form the base of my following

080


081


Connect Connecting is one of the dominant strategies adopted in the design development phase. By connecting the points in this geometric shape in a logical way, the pattern can be divided into individual parts, and used as a reference to plan the layout of the interior space. Moreover, this method shows a sense of connectivity between users.

Fold This method is used to resolve the ‘shape angles’ problem, which emerged in the original pattern. Since the shape angles are not desirable for planning the whole space, I need to remove them.

Extrude “Extrude” is the strategy I used to apply on all the internal partitions and furnishing. The forms of furniture were derived from the elements, which extracted from either the lines or shapes of the final pattern. Besides, all the sizes of the furniture are extruded into a standard level to satisfy users’ requirements.

- Future Annual Report 2000

INFINITE


In Australia, food waste contributes the largest proportion of all types of waste in the landfills, there are more than 5 billion worth of food have been discarded there annually. However, food waste does not merely cause massive financial losses, but also as a host of natural resources losses. Food waste is acknowledged as one of the most harmful factor to the environment, the environmental impacts are substantial from air emissions to water usage.

This project aims to promote rational food consuming behaviours and attitudes to international students. We revealed that the awareness of food waste issue among international students is relatively low. Additionally, we found that international student prefer to dine out rather than eat at home.

As one of the solutions to tackle the severe food waste problem, we are proposing a restaurant (a channel for student to engage with a healthier community), which incorporates with a kitchen (promote sustainable cooking skills with local and seasonal ingredients) and a garden (promote that food waste could be utilised by decomposing), in order to promote a sustainable lifestyle.

The intention of designing this website is to create a virtual community, where a multitude of purposes is contained. Firstly, general information and background of the organization could be found through the website by the users. Secondly, this website offers users an opportunity to have a longterm interaction with our restaurant, as well as with other users. In terms of public awareness, the name, brand and identity of the restaurant could also be enhanced.
