INTRODUCTION Architecture, as the physical dimension of our cities and places, contains within its walls the paradigm of cultural and social production. The built environment affords a creation of a social identity, both individual and collective. My passion for architecture stems from this imperative for an architectural identity. I aspire to a holistic conception of architecture, one which embraces a multitude of interdisciplinary notions relating to the built environment so as to engage and facilitate greater cultural significance, community interaction and sustainable practice. Through my experiences, I have built upon my initial perception of architecture’s complexities and seek now to further my knowledge and understanding of the discipline through professional practice. This portfolio is thus a collection of previous works documenting my education at an undergraduate level. The works consist largely of projects undertaken within the Bachelor of Environments at the University of Melbourne with a select few developed in a professional and private context.
“We hold to the idea that architecture is not simply reducible to the container and the contained but that there exists a dynamic exchange between the life of matter and the matter of our lives.” REISER + UMEMOTO, 2010

ANESTHESIA’S VEIL ARCHITECTURE DESIGN STUDIO FIRE (2016) LOCATION: West Melbourne TUTOR: Stephanie Liddicoat ‘Anesthesia’s Veil’ provides awareness and control of the rhythms and patterns of an individual’s breathing, affecting both physiological functioning and cognitive state in the process.

THE BREATH AS SPACE
Through an unconscious forfeit of autonomy, the audience is indoctrinated with a spatial control of respiratory patterns. The architecture acts as a facilitating medium, establishing a collective and universal anesthesia in spatial thresholds. A central controlling motif simultaneously entrances the viewer in a subconscious meditative state, gradually relinquishing its governance over breath by generating passive rhythmic interactions in compression and release. Echoes of inhalation and exhalation ripple through multi-layered fabrics, elucidating ephemeral vectors and facilitating the illusion of air movement along their surfaces. Through this use of translucency, porosity and malleability in architectural elements, the sensual perception of distance and vision is blurred, affording tangibility to the breath in space.
Here, the body assumes its primary role in respiratory awareness through sensory voiding, conducting the user to achieve consciousness over breath, and thus autonomy over mind.

MERRI PROMENADE ARCHITECTURE DESIGN STUDIO AIR (2015) LOCATION: Merri Creek, Melbourne TUTOR: Sonya Parton The Promenade is a kinetic system developed through algorithmic and mechanical processes As an architectural hypothesis for future human and technological interaction, the project’s intention is to utilise this symbiosis to redefine human-nature relationships. In its static state, the Promenade functions as a sculptural mirror reflecting the artificial man-made nature of the user’s side of the park. On the other side, however, is an open drainage which carries litter and various other pollutants into the river, damaging the ecosystem in the process. The Promenade seeks to expose these conditions by luring the user towards its central point, cantilevered over the river, before opening up and exposing the other side through user-sensor detection. The integration of sensor-based motion and responsive rotation via Arduino motors allows each panel to be algorithmically programmed to rotate within a range of 90 degrees as determined by the proximity of the user. As the user approaches the promenade, each individual panel rotates in response, creating varying degrees of transparency. Together, as the user moves along the bank, each panel rotates in a wave-like motion, following and confronting the user’s ignorance as they are exposed to the consequences of human neglect upon our natural ecosystems.

“The human eye has a readiness for patterns. Much is not seen simply because the mind is blind, not eyes. The eyes see in lines, curves, and patterns. Man himself works in patterns simple or complex, and such things are often evidence of man’s previous presence.” William Tell Sackett, Treasure Mountain. Louis L’Amour, 1972

BOTTOM OF THE WELL ARCHITECTURE DESIGN STUDIO EARTH (2016) LOCATION: Herring Island, Melbourne TUTOR: Heather Mitcheltree
A The sub-conscious as a metaphysical state of experience is intrinsic to the human capacity for existential encounter. However, the sub-conscious is constrained by the regulated and ordered constraints of urban reality, conditioning the individual to a repetitious cycle of social imitation and behaviour. The individual no longer has a self, but is part of a collective mass, psychologically eroding potential sensory engagements and any capacity for introspection.
To counter this, the Pavilion at Herring Island seeks to provide a place for the individual to discover a state of repressed subconscious. Conceived as a series of wells which puncture down into the depths of the earth, these singular, fragmented spaces stimulate sensory encounters through a conflicting interplay between the underground chaotic state and the fragile grid structure superimposed upon it.
Through tension and chaos, a spatial interaction with the sublime is made through the confrontation between the space of bodily presence (underground) and the space of visual encounter (surface). These states of isolation thus extenuate the island’s role as a spatial haven, permitting the individual to discover the secret of their existential self, and take with them a secret perception of the island upon re-emergence from the earth.

INTERNET DELOREAN ADITNALTA AA VISITING SCHOOL LOCATION: Architectural Association, London TEAM: Matthew Tibballs, Seung Hyuk Choi TUTOR(s): Mond Qu, Artemis Doupa, Denis Vlieghe The Internet as a virtual place for architectural intervention lies at the heart of Aditnalta. Through an investigation into the place-making nature of the Internet and the reactive nature of users at the loss of websites, a conceptual basis is provided for understanding the advent of internet archives as indicative of a new stage in human emotional attachment to the virtual realm. The Internet Delorean then, presents itself as a virtual cemetery. An architectural virtual typology destined for digital preservation of memory through the capturing of deleted pixels and defunct virtual environments, both physically as a totem and virtually as an immersive web-site. This immersion is experienced through a multi-dimensional interplay between time and scale in a warped and distorted temporality. Virtually, the user navigates through extruded pixels containing the lost information data whereby upon arriving at a central void glimpses of the pixels show images of lost websites. The cemetery provides a place for the individual to wonder and engage with digital memories, as well as acting as a platform for the upload of oneâ€™s own memories and totems. True immortalisation of space then becomes a (virtual) reality through the negation of time as an overarching dictator of user access and information availability.

The workshop involved experimentations in various digital mediums such as projection mapping, animation, Oculus Rift and 3D Unity. These were employed as tools for architectural expression and virtual immersion.

SECOND SKIN DIGITAL DESIGN & FABRICATION (2015) TEAM: Matthew Tibballs, Brydie Singleton, Stephen Yoannidis TUTOR: Rosie Gunzburg
The Second Skin is an exploration of personal space through the abstraction and distortion of form that encapsulates gender identification. Through the conceptualisation of the Third Gender, the second skin could blur the boundaries between masculine and female polarities in relation to sexuality and gender. The deliberate deformation and distortion of the androgynous zones of the human body â€˜s silhouette thus enables one to conceal corporeal vulnerabilities from dominant social paradigms relating to gender stereotype and judgment.
MODEL PHOTOGRAPHY Authorâ€™s own (2015)
This project required extensive knowledge and skills in digital mediums like Rhinoceros both for designing and for the fabrication process through the laser cutter. I utilised my knowledge, skills and passion in this area to direct and guide my team towards a successful end result. For more information regarding this project, please visit: http://issuu.com/matthewtibballs/docs/module_4_ matthewtibballs_638803
PERSONAL SPACE & CORPORAL DISTORTION Diagrams by M.T
The second skin was fabricated from many individual panels laser cut with algorithmically placed tabs. This allowed each piece to be assembled together and attached via the tabs. This process occurs gradually until the second skin begins to take form. Internal wires are used to stabilize the structure, providing tensile strength to an otherwise compressive structure.
BOATHOUSE ARCHITECTURE DESIGN STUDIO WATER (2014) LOCATION: Studley Park, Melbourne TUTOR: Isun Kazerani

BOATHOUSE DISPLAY & ACCESS Ground Floor (1)
The Boathouse for Studley Park is the culmination of in-depth investigation of the modernist aesthetic and the work of Rem Koolhaas, creating a synthesis of his ideologies and my own conceptual explorations.
Koolhaas employs a programmatic-driven approach to architecture, focusing on certain dualities and alliances of programs as a means of determining architectural form, with an interest in architectureâ€™s role in social and cultural production. The Berlin Wall, as a typology of cultural disruption acts as the foundational element for social interaction and activity within the Boathouse, slicing through the landscape, creating a dislocation, fragmentation and inter-weaving of programs. The form is then composed out of these programs, establishing opposing alliances between social functions of the restaurant and the cafe, and then reassembling them around a central atrium containing the boat house. Linked by circulation and ramps, the interior flows as one navigates from east to west.

CONSTRUCTION CONSTRUCTION DESIGN (2015) TEAM: Matthew Tibballs, Mikaela Prentice TUTOR: Seung Hyuk Choi Knowledge and understanding of contemporary construction theory and practice was put into application through the construction of a 1:20 scale model and an axonometric drawing of a pre-existing building section. The allocated building was the Ivanhoe Grammar School by McBride Charles Ryan Architects (2015). The model required extensive time-management skills and teamwork to achieve a model that could demonstrate strong understanding of construction detailing and techniques within the industry.

COMPETITION: Australian Tapestry Design Competition 2015 LOCATION: Australian Pavilion, Venice Biennale TEAM: Matthew Tibballs, Audrey Whisker, Ridz Hasib Working with a team of graduated architects, I participated in a competition to design a tapestry for the newly designed Australian Pavilion by Denton Corker Marshall architects for the Venice Biennale. The Tapestry seeks to encapsulate the mercurial identity of Australia through the inhabitant’s close connection to the landscape. Initially inspired by the poem, ‘My Country’ by Dorothea Mackellar, the design incorporates a narrative upon the contrasting and unpredictable events of the native landscape through a one-point perspective plane, drawing one closer towards its burning centre. The imprecision of the aesthetics aims to capture the elusive nature of Australia’s identification with an unruly landscape as one of dissolution. This is maintained by its dissolution into the purely white room of the Australian Pavilion.
TAPESTRY FINAL DESIGN Illustrated by M.T
The tapestry was proposed to be woven of silver lurex threads combined with simple cotton stretched horizontally on a low-warp loom to create interlocking and woven elements. This led to the creation of a collection of transitional events within the fabric, one of textural luminosity and transparency, capturing moments that converge and clarify to create the ever evolving plain of our sunburnt identity.
“I love a sunburnt country, A land of sweeping plains, of ragged mountain ranges, of droughts and flooding rains. I love her far horizons, I love her jewel-sea, Her beauty and her terror the wide brown land for me!” Dorothea Mackellar 1908 TAPESTRY WITHIN GALLERY Rendered by R.H
