SITE ANALYSIS The relationship between wind, botany and geology are clear to see when viewing the landscapes of Bremer Bay. - Unique dwarf and wind swept vegetation - Encroaching sand blows into the landscape - Dramatic cliff faces with erosion of soft limestone - The protrusion of the more durable earth structures that remained prominent

typical site quality E

Water erosion Banks sometimes naturally erode on bends, however when vegetation is cleared, they can become unstable causing extensive erosion along the floodway and the build up of sediment that is slowly washed downstream.

BIOPHICIC CITIES The extent to which humans are hard-wired to need connection with nature and forms of life. For this project, we have been given the site, and people, how do we connect them? What is the connection between people and place? To maxmize the quality of the site to find a way how people and object could connect. Biophicic Cities is a complex of learning rules, it helps for building up the human and environment interaction as a theory. DESIGN is art optimized to meet objectives.

DESIGN STRATEGY WHAT TO MAKE/DO? WHY DO WE NEED IT? -To provide a bushfire refuge for the local community so that as an object. it will help people escape the fire hazed when bushfire happens. -To maximum the site potential, highlight the special characters on site. -To solve the water and wind erosion issues that happening on the site. -To provide more entertainment space for local community and tourisms. -To provide a safety space for all. Especially the lighting for night time. -To solve the current road structure issue. Understanding bio-landscape as well as cultural landscape in a large context is the key to start. The building material is refer to FIREFLY company products, making sure it is fire rating materials.

Differnt scales of structures provide different types of connection

HOW TO IMMOVATE CONTEXTICALLY BOTH IMMEDIATELY AND OVER LONG TERM? Design in stages First Stage To build the permanent multi-function bushfire refuge at blossom beach site.(refer to site plan) Second Stage To link the blossom beach and little boat harbour. Third Stage To build another minor permanent multi-function bushfire refuge at little boat harbour site. SYSTEMATIC APPROACH -EDUCATION: educating people on bushfire knowledge : educating people on first aid training : educating people on landscape ecology knowledge : educating people on escape the fire, and practice maybe once or twice a year. -Community : protecting land/landscape is everyone’s responsebility : refuge as a normal community center will have more interaction -Economy

: providing more actives, attract more tourism. Such as: 4*4 wheels drive, fishing, hiking, camping, etc. : maximize natural energy, such as solar energy and wind.

-Government: Bushfire management Landscape maintained

Project:Piscina des Marés Architect: Alvaro Siza The pool das Mares is one of the first works as an architect Alvaro Siza done independently. The Atlantic Ocean can be in many cases angry and hostile can become a danger to swimmers, especially for children. That is why the Câmara Municipal de Matochinhos commissioned these pools of saltwater waterfront architect Alvaro Siza, so that bathers could enjoy their thing in a safe and controlled environment, especially on days when the sea is more lively and strong currents and big waves make it almost impossible to get near the water.major architectural landmarks of Oporto.

Project: ICEBERG Montréal Architect: ATOMIC3 Location: Montréal, Canada Function: The wildly colorful ICEBERG installation is the latest architectonic spectacle commissioned by Montréal’s Quartier des Spectacles Partnership, which brings cultural enrichment to the city’s prominent urban spaces. ATOMIC3s installation is formed by series of angled archways that can be passed through, triggering an interactive light and sound show. The dynamic groupings of archways recall icebergs fragmenting from larger ice sheets, starting with passages large enough for adults and gradually shrinking to accomodate children alone. source:
