Using Rhino, Grasshopper, Excel and Revit we were able to make quick informed design decisions in an optimized design process using parametric technology. Conceptually BM was able to experiment with the notion of the icon, its prerequisite for sustainable credentials and the Tower’s role in a quickly developing city on the global stage. As such BM were able to give more than was asked: “Our ambition is to not just create a building, but create a truly sustainable icon which adds value to its surroundings, an icon that gives back to the people, an icon that is greater than the sum of its parts”

design leader As part of a large resort masterplan, this concept architecture explores the poetic and sensory aspects of architecture. A spa complex that exploits a natural hot water spring offers up water at varying temperatures which informs the user experience as process: A process of healing. Varying temperatures of 42° - 14° are combined with other heightened sensory experiences; in particular three pools have different qualities that dampen one sense in order to heighten the experience of the other. For instance the flower bath limits light admittance and acoustically deadens - thus increasing the reliance on the users other senses. Other areas of the masterplan called for the design of villas, hotel rooms and suites, for which space planning is used to exploit and enhance the surroundings.

Ian used Rhino with Grasshopper to develop the facde design parametrically. This efficient design methodology not only ensured geomtric optimisation but enabled for quick documentation which would be labourious and time consuming using conventional methods. Equiset’s Digital harbour for Melbourne Water has subsequently gained a 5 Green Star rating. This project was completed in late 2012.

lead designer Early concept and ideas design for a golf club house associated with the main hotel resort complex. The design exploits the wetlands location by ensuring long views are maximized, and framed by the floor and ceiling planes. Simplicity of plan organisation sees working club functions are on the ground floor, lockers changing and so forth, whilst bar and restaurant funtions exploit the upper elevated floor, utilising roof space for terracing. The resultant form is simple in resolution, acting as a backdrop or frame to the surroundings.

lead designer This project takes precedent from an earlier small street shop refurb for the anything brand - a new mall location provides a brand oppotunity to up the stakes of sophistication, whilst remaining on budget. Using the companies dress making skills to translate digital parametrics into hand crafted and ethereal forms, the concept is derived from ‘cloud’, translated into an undulating flowing ceiling surface that creates space in voids and delinates areas of focus.

Bungee the atrium, chill out on the 24th floor meadow, or surf the 5th. Yet this building subtly subverts its own hedonism with glimpses of the sublime, the unlooked for moments of wonder and delight.

R.I.B.A. President’s medals Nominated project. Maggie’s Cancer Caring Centre provides a range of services not provided by the NHS, to patients suffering from cancer. The scheme has evolved through a conceptual response to the idea of death and rebirth, and that manifestation in the landscape of the city. Ian devised conceptual methodology involving mapping nodes of change and nodes of non-change, superimpositions, shift of scale and applications of metaphor; this culminates in a formal language for the scheme. Combined with pragmatic responses to the site, environmental concerns and programmatic requirements, the building emerges as an intensity of singular interventions. The concept knows no bounds as the interventions have the potential to spread city wide.

Masters university project asked for students to examine a peice of architecture at the one to one scale. In this case I designed and built a devisive piece which affected the surrounding upon interruption by a user. The intent was to invoke the sense of the sublime. Using electromagnets, sensors, laser and refracting surface passing users would trigger a series of events which would eventually illuminate a room by scattering light rays. The unexpected would occur in the most banal circumstances.
