GROWTH The development of a city: landscape and population Influence of nature - structural - aesthetic Complex form for greater light and shadow outcomes Representing the social, political and physical growth of Wyndham A comment on the continuing growth of outer Melbourne An aesthetic representative of the structure


GROWTH repetition of a single unit (inspired by the structure of a Kaolinite atom) overall form resembles the sinuous lines of plant or tendril growth representing the growth of Wyndham and its 4 major towns (Point Cook, Truganina, Tarneit, Williams Landing) form, density and scaling alluding to the cities’ growth a juxtaposition of natural and constructed landscapes


Growth transformation over time fastest growth of all Victorian local governments 3,500 children born in the past year, almost 50,000 more expected in the next 10 years material change over time, reflecting community growth triangulated surface treatment contrasts the site, and natural growth within the structure (www.wyndham.vic.gov.au)


LIFE CORTEN steel

slight darkening over time

uncoated steel

rusting and corrosion over extended periods of time

copper

protective blue patina over time


COMPONENT DEVELOPMENT


THE YORKSHIRE DIAMOND Various Architects

repetition of a single unit (based on the structure of a diamond atom) aesthetic consequential to the structural arrangement great flexibility in design as a result of lattice design an insight into the organic for a modern and practical outcome

define geometry of atom unit

create series of atom unit along 2D plane

stack plan vertically (2 planes)

crop excess beams and surface interior


HAWKE BUILDING John Wardle Architects

copper panelling as part of the modern aesthetic aqua patina on copper over time indicate age and act as a protective skin development of facade through patina growth and wall staining

The structure will be supported by pile footings. While smaller units can be prefabricated and transported to site, the structure can be transported in panals and assemble on site. Soil can be use to fill the pocket to allow growth of wild plants.

Once constructed, nature will start to reclaim the place and this is allowed. Metals will change its colour due to oxidation and will eventually dissappear due to chemical reaction, before that plants and animal will occupy the sculpture. The changes represent the concept of growth and the power of nature.

Using the growth of plants as a analogy, through repetition of one single unit which transforms with scale and density to represent grow of the city. Material will represnet the impact of time and which complete the life cycle of the sculpture.

By studying the trend of growth of Wyndham City the form is used to to reflect city growth. The trend is a factor of the scale and the lines represent directions. Several minerals structure are tested as mineral can represent growth in a geometrical pattern while gives complex looking shape. Kaolinite is selected to inspire the structure of the base unit.
