FINDING COMMON GROUND

On a 2-hectare site, divided by slopes, plateaus and various sporting clubs, this project looks at introducing accommodation and a sporting hall to the Mt Tamborine site. Through careful and detailed site analysis, it became clear that th site as a whole needed to become connected and made walkable. This was achieved through finding a path across the site that flows with the contours while allowing the sporting fields to operate as normal. This path was defined with landscape interventions that complemented the slopes and plateaus while providing the appropriate shading, seating and circulation that was needed. The scale of the site and the qualities of the landscape interventions meant that the site could be developed in a series of phases, allowing realistic funding options for the Tamborine community.

ARCHISCRIPT

Looking at parametric design and the use of robots through a Grasshopper definition. The archiscript was created to replicate “Untitled - 1967� by artist Eva Hesse. This artwork was chosen based on the obvious repetition of the piece making an ideal job for a precision robot to draw. The grasshopper definition was fed into the robot and drawn in real time.


LOST IN TRANSITION

A project looking at a historic Gold Coast site, James Street, and how through careful and attentive analysis, a library and community center could be woven into the rich fabric of the area.

MASTERPLAN 1:500

ON THE WATERFRONT

A project that focused on masterplainning an 8,000 square meter site in accordance with a plot ratio that consisted of accommodation and retail with one of the masses being an Arts and Fabrication school that would be detailed later on in the semester. The design for the Arts and Fabrication School explored how open a space could be while also providing a sense of security allow for programs to freely function. Mid-day Winter Mid-dayand Summer
