At this stage of the design, massing should have developed far enought to merit detailed investigation of internal spaces and facade. Build on the chosen design concept by incorporating themes into both the section and facade.

A NEW CONVENTION?

Combining rule based process with new digital modelling tools, explore methods of creating form outside of traditional building systems. Emphasis is to be placed on the ‘possible’ rather than the probable, the expected.

13


ITERATE

Develop a series of rules and conditions that allow for iterative testing of form and volume. A method of evaluating iterations is crucial to move on from this stage.

POPULATION / SIZE / AFFORDABILITY

Using an urban train line as a point of reference, explore options for alternate types of housing in Australia. Examine issues of appropriate size, typology, amenity.

1246 plots 8 people/storey @ 1 level

4 people/storey @ 2 levels

2-3 people/storey @ 3 levels

2 people/storey @ 4 levels

STRATEGY 1: Concentrate density close to train station. Zone bands around station reducing density further fron station.Joshua Wa 21

STRATEGY 2: Identify sites with the tallest built volume. Explore potential for small footprint/high yield density.

STRATEGY 3: Identify largest sites by area. Development of these plots will leave smallest total sites affected. 22


Vere

STRATEGY 4: Examine existing infrastructure for opportunities to limit car travel and maximise green corridors.

A MODULAR SOLUTION: Develop a combination of modules that will accomodate expected occupancy patterns. Note shift in traditional household numbers towards single and small family residences. Envelope and facade of modules can be informed by the local context. Examine residential building stock and incorporate common materials into the design. Facade rhythm can be read from abstracting the areas street layout.

SITE SKETCHES:

1. Develop a series of site drawings over time paying particular attention to terrain, landscape relationships and the site specifics.

CONTEXT ANALYSIS:

2. Break down local building stock into materials, analysing their position in relation to the street, major features and isolate one detail to create a catalogue of surroundings. 27


SCRIBBLE Develop a quick series of pencil (or similar medium that is quick, erasable) sketches that aim to resolve position and orientation of building.

IMPORTANT: At this stage drawings should be exploratory. Avoid locking an idea down too early.

Making sure a site model is accurately built, test massing to scale. Adjust building height and volume with different iterations. Preliminary material tests are encouraged.

NOTE: Models are to be quick and easily changed. These models are design tools, not presentation pieces.

30


If possible, obtain 1:1 scale sample materials to test for performance (flexibility, strength etc) and visual qualities. Photograph model studies.

NOTE: Photographing models with a macro or similar lens yields best results. 31

CATALOGUE Categorise built elements and develop axonometric diagram showing relationships between components. Working from outside in, or inside out- document materials. Items should include the following at a minimum. 1. Base/slab 2. Primary structure 3. Secondary structure 4. Internal circulation 5. Interior materials and relevant joinery items

NOTE: Residence is to be located close to water course and largely vegetated landscape. Flooding and fires are common threats - ensure building design takes this into account. 36
