Project Description The design is an expression of artistic idea and conception that have emerged from an inimate feeling for nature. It is a constructed wetland that can adapt to environmental changes through the use of modular and parametric design. The modular function of this design can decrease the maintenance required for the site by prevent large spread of damage. Also, gap between these triangles increase absorption of stormwater runoff therefore, reduce the chances of flooding. WATER LEVEL + SECTION A-A Goodenia ovata

MARKET OF MARKETS

In the morning, it is a great place for morning exercise, a scenic and pleasant route for wokring class, a shaded/sunny place for resting.

In the afternoon, it provides certain spa activities.

PINK BALLOONS

Queen Victoria Market, as the oldest market in Melbourne CBD and the former locale of Old Cemetery, was chosen to be our site. We looked for emerging programmes and how it start to construct its urban context. Our assigned site is a T-shaped area adjacent to two historial buildings, at the corner of Queen St and Franklin St.

In order to preserve the valuable heritage building and landscape, the design retains a few most significant buildings and reuse it for contemporary needs. The streetscape and planting are designed according to the desired aesthetic value of historical landscape.

We preserved most of the original natural landscape, and designed the potential flooding area into a wetland park with some possible recreational activities.

BEE PAVILION

Panel joints

Pipe joints

length is 0.5 mm larger than the solid structure gives room for mechine accuracy

apply holes in the centre of each panel regularly Isometric

Every angle is generated by Grasshopper accordingly Top Length of each joint is calculated by Grasshopper according to the length of each pipe.

Hollow structure

Every angle is generated by Grasshopper accordingly

each panel can be joined seamlessly by nails, it was cut using CNC router to get the designed angle.

With the help of humans to fill up each frame with clay, the structure serves as a bee hotel where humans can also observe the life cycle of the bees

BEE PAVILION

Safe Nesting Space By providing a space for bees to safely reproduce, we aim to increase the population of this endangered species The bees would help the polination of certain flower plants such as tomatoes which then could be harvested by human.

Timber Framework 5mm thick plywood triangular frame as a mold for soft clay to be used by bees as a nesting space
