SKILLS ABOUT ME

ADOBE CREATIVE SUITE

Design to me is to have empathy for people, place and the environment.

Illustrator InDesign Lightroom Photoshop

Understanding the fundamentals of the psychological and sociological effects of the built environment.

COMPUTER AIDED DRAWING

To make a place that is culturally sensitive, sustainable and all-inclusive.

ArchiCad Vectorworks Rhino Revit Cinema 4D SketchUp

I’m strongly interested in bridging gaps in our communities, aboriginal, internationals and low-income earners. I would ultimately like to work on projects concerning affordable housing, multiresidential, mixed-use, hospitality, schools, heritage, pro-bono and urban interventions. I want to create architecture that is empowering to our psyche and well-being, not built for the here and now, but built for the future. Katie Hesketh Graduate Architect M.Arch, B.Envd

CONTEXT: In Australia there is a lack of housing options for people with disabilities in the inner city. In reaction to this the National Disabilities Insurance Agency, implemented in 2013 the National Disabilities Insurance Scheme (NDIS), currently still under trial, NDIA is set to give $550milion per annum in 2018 with an increase in 2019 to $700million, to the user cost of capital investment, to fund developers through a leverage system to build more family friendly, affordable, accessible housing in the inner city OVERVIEW: Urban Sensescape is a hypothetical multiresidential complex, The project responds directly to the NDIS’s demand for accessible inner city housing. However the development is all-inclusive, it is a place that offers varied housing options; catering for families, singles, couples, carers, students, of all abilities and economic backgrounds. Urban Sensescape is a Biophilic design where the landscape becomes an extension of the architecture. It brings the community, neighbors and nature together to create a safe, healthy and simulating place to live and thus increasing the overall well-being of residents. The development reactivates the block and becomes an extension of the collage. It seeks to draw in the students to help reduce social isolation of residents and create a thriving diverse micro community. The site is within a 5mins walk to the CBD, educational facilities and public transport. This decreases the need for cars and increases employment opportunities for people with disabilities. CLIENT: Urban Sensescape is designed for a private developer who has conjoined with the Tasmanian Government and Launceston City Council. The funding has been leveraged from the NDIA by the developer with an agreement to implement 40% of the development to accessible housing, in the inner city of Launceston.

CONTEXT: The Hothouse is a temporary bamboo pavilion designed in collaboration with Cave Urban and the UTAS School of Architecture. The pavilion housed both Clemenger’s 72hr think tank and Dark Mofo’s festival feast. CAVE URBAN Is a Sydney based grass roots design collaborative. LOCATION:

Salamanca Lawns, Hobart, Tasmania, Australia

CLIENTS: MUSEUM OF OLD AND NEW ART (MONA) Private Museum and Art Gallery owned by David Walsh CLEMENGER Integrated marketing communications agency in Tasmania. EVENTS: DARK MOFO Winter Festival - HOSTED BY MONA The art base festival celebrates the winter solstice through a variety of installations including; large-scale public art, food, music and dancing. 72-HOUR THINK TANK – HOSTED BY CLEMENGER The event brought together a range of creative thinkers from around country, to explore and respond to issues that impacted the future of Tasmania’s education system.

DESIGN PROCESS In the Initial stages we did research on the event, place, climate and bamboo. Later we had an intensive week long workshop with two of the leaders from Cave Urban to constructively come up with concept drawings, models and a final design strategy.

Model of pod, semi enclosed for shelter and warmth

DESIGN REQUIREMENTS • Respond to the Dark MOFO Theme “The Nest” • Space to be warm and dry • Well ventilated • Wi-Fi enabled • Adequate Seating for the feast • Seating area for the Think Tank to have there discussions • Closed off to the public for the “Think Tank” event. CHALLENGES Having never used bamboo, we didn’t understand the material. During the workshop, we found that we couldn’t force the bamboo into a shape that we wanted and instead we just had to work with how the natural material behaved.

CONSTRUCTION PROCESS Commencement of the construction took place in May; the weather conditions varied from icy cold sunny days with snow on Mt Wellington to cold windy and heavy rain. Due to the nature of the bamboo it was very hard to predict how the design would exactly come out. Every piece of bamboo was different so selecting the right piece became import. This meant that we were constantly making many small design changes on site. These deign ideas had to be made quickly and were always a trial an error process. CHALLENGES • Bad weather conditions slowed the construction process down. • The cold made the bamboo more brittle. This meant we had change the column design. • The plans were left in Sydney so we just worked off the concept models. • Different types of bamboo could only be used for certain jobs. Due to the limited amount of bamboo that was harvest in Queensland and shipped down, we had to work with what we had, thus changing the design as we went. • We were always in the public eye, being photographed and filmed, so we had to make sure we were always compiling to health and safety regulations. SKILLS LEARNED • Traditional and new techniques in bamboo construction • On-site health and safety regulations – White Card • Rapid on the spot designing • Designing through model making and trial an error • Process of presenting concepts to clients and council.

CONTEXT:

The volunteering construction program was a collaboration between Aussie Action Abroad and Architects Without Frontiers. We were sent out to a remote small village on the Annapurna circuit to build a shelter for the Aama Samuha - mother’s group.

LOCATION:

Bhulbule, Gandaki, Nepal

REQUIREMENTS: 5.7m wide by 15m long shelter for community celebrations, festivals and meetings. CHALLENGES: • • • • • SKILLS LEARNED:

• • • • • •

Language barrier The weather slowed down the construction process The blocks for the walls turn up still wet so they were falling apart. The structure was a bit wobbly and could of done with a bit more bracing. Unfortunately the building was never completed due to a lack of funds.
