AN URBAN PUBLIC BATHHOUSE MASTERS THESIS PROJECT Tutor : Richard Stampton Year : 2015 Location : Flinders St & Batman Ave, Melbourne

The thesis proposes an urban public bathhouse for the residents and workers of Melbourne city. This urban public bathhouse will be a new type of bathing complex located at the corner of the city as a counter point to the intense commerce activity in the city. It also challenges the trend of exclusive spas that transgressed a once active public bath experience to a passive and exclusive experience. This bath is based upon a study of historical precedents and the specific characteristics of the site. It is essential that this project connects the southeast edge of the city to the currently disconnected Yarra River and Birrarung Marr Park precinct. By creating a public bathhouse that open to the city like a park through a series of green terraces to the park, it will create a civic space that integrates the city, park and river.


WHY IS THE BATHHOUSE RELEVANT TO MELBOURNE? As Melbourne city continues to grow and seek more productivity and higher efficiency to drive the economy, it leads to an increase in stress level and work hours among the residents and workers of the city. In addition, the increasing individualisation of the way people live in the city coupled with the age of internet reduce the opportunity of face-toface interaction, further exacerbate the problem of isolation and stress in the city. Hence, there is a social and economic necessity to provide a refuge for the restoration of the mind and body and to allow for more social opportunities within the city context. The rich history of bathing and the bath had benefited the public in terms of spiritual, hygienic, therapeutic and social elements as shown in the past civilizations. In Melbourne, the bathing culture that focused on hygiene and health, was strong in its early days as seen by the opening of the Melbourne City Bath in 1860 and several Turkish baths across the city in the late 19th C. The bathing culture later evolved into modern pools that shifted the focus from hygiene towards sport, recreation and pleasure. Modern pools play an important role as physical and social assets that continue to build social engagement in communities.

PERCEPTION //// REALITY REALITY A BEAUTIFUL LIBRARY PERCEPTION Masters Design Project E Tutor : Jean-Paul Rollo + Anna Ely Year : 2015 Location : St. Paul’s Cathedral Close

The project explores the concept of beauty based on an idea from the philosopher Slavoj Zizek whereby what we perceived and observed differently from reality could enhance its beauty as opposed from reality. Beauty in this project will be explored by changing perceptions through visual interplay of framing of views, framing of space and reflections. Framing of views and space : When an object which exists “beyond” is seen from “inside” that is behind a glass or a screen barrier it is as if we are looking at a performance on the screen instead of reality. By framing the view behind a glass, it can enhance an object’s sublime appearance. Frames are used to frame the cathedral and paintings which are the focal point of the library. The language of the frame continues to the plan – allow the experience of walking through frames and dictate space layout and formation. Reflections - visual play with light: Reflective glass that has transparency that varies from one side to the other depending on the lighting condition are used to create a changing perception of space (space “expands” or “disappears” when the lighting condition changes).

AN EMBASSY FOR THE DISPLACED BANABANS Masters Design Project D Tutor : Alexander Selenitsch + Mikhail Rodrick Year : 2014 Location : Alexandra,Victoria

The embassy - Coconut Republic is an archipelago of buildings built around and in relation to the coconut plantation which drives the main interest of the embassy. The embassy as a whole is an intensification of the stratified geographical condition of the island revolving around the coconut trees which form the main spectacle of the embassy. The embassy is made up of a learning center, workshops, guest houses, community center, market, processing plant and office spaces. The various programs support and ensure the running of the embassy as a place where dialogue around the ‘tree of life’ - coconut trees, can take place through learning, commercial activities and cultural events. Each building has ‘walls’ as permeable, cut out or habitable spaces to negotiate and facilitate the exchange between the coconuts and the architecture.

SHARED HIGHRISE LIVING Masters Design Project C Tutor : Eriko Watanabe & Igor Kebel Year : 2014 Location : Docklands, Melbourne

This project aims to bridge the gap between the expatriates and locals by promoting the exchange of culture and experience through shared interest within the three main themes: food, art and health. The three themes are derived from comparing the different cultures of the locals and the expatriates and formulate what aspects could be exchanged and experienced through sharing. The sharing will be promoted using different combinations of the three themes to create an interesting and diverse mix of shared spaces. The sharing is introduced at different scales of the community whereby there is a graduation of shared spaces as one moves from private dwellings to public spaces. The graduation of space is crucial to introduce sharing at different level of interaction among close neighbours of the same floor and with residents from other floors. Conway’s Game of Life rules is used as a basis to distribute the diverse shared programs to achieve the right amount of semi-public and public spaces.


Different generations of live cells (solid) are created based on the rules of the game.

PROGRAMMATIC DISTRIBUTION From the Conway Game of Life iterations, the public space becomes the connector of the semi-public spaces to create a fluid shared space that connects the 2 towers. The following shows how the shared spaces are distributed across the different levels connecting the two towers. The shared spaces are allocated based on the sharing matrix.

Photovoltaic Glass (Onyx)

Our active energy generation systems (solar + wind) is expected to produce 622,110 kWh of energy annually which accounts for about 3% of the annual energy consumption. The Onyx blue thin-film photovoltaic glass system are integrated into the spandrel. As the panels are integrated into the curtain wall, they double as the façade hence saving materials and cost. The building-integrated PV panels also form the active strategy to supplement the building’s electrical needs, taking precedence from 4 Times Square Building in New York.

glass behind (see A3.1 & 3.2). On the other hand, the columns chosen are slender and small compared to the exterior bracings (see table below), setback into the floor plate slightly to be hidden behind the envelope and finally painted black, further reducing its visibility especially from far. All these is to create an illusion that the tower is supported by a diagrid system when in fact it is a steel tube-in-tube with external bracings.

Design Intent The structure of the skyscraper is used to highlight the slenderness of form while making a statement at the corner of William and Bourke Streets. The form generated from the stacking assignment is used to govern the structural system eventually designed. We wanted to express the strong diagonal lines of the form though the use of an external bracing system while minimsing the visual impact of the columns. It had also been decided that the vanity height be constructed solely as an extension of the bracings below without any envelope to make the tower appear â&#x20AC;&#x153;lighterâ&#x20AC;? and taller. Hence, the bracings are not only painted white but offset outwards to increase the sense of depth between the structure and the envelope and therefore making them more eye-catching against the blue glass behind (see A3.1 & 3.2). On the other hand, the columns chosen are slender and small compared to the exterior bracings (see table below), setback into the floor plate slightly to be hidden behind the envelope and finally painted black, further reducing its visibility especially from far. All these is to create an illusion that the tower is supported by a diagrid system when in fact it is a steel tube-in-tube with external bracings.
