A place that has a unique social identity is defined by the way it is used and the people who use it. Humans are social beings with a basic need for interpersonal relationships. Medical and psychological studies highlight how this human need sustains overall social, emotional and physical wellbeing also developing and strengthening intellectual performance. It is important to realise that a “sense of place” is of fundamental value to people everywhere. This new “heart” of Swinbourne I am proposing aimes to provide a place where individuals share respect for one another and university values. A place that encourages social engagement and creates networks where students and staff can gather, socialise, and engage in relationship building. A place that ultimately creates sense of place, belonging, and makes Swinburne a stimulating, innovative and energising place to be, through introducing shared spaces and multifunctional programs such as exhibitions, restaurant, multifunctional hall and communication, to make it full of humanistic life.

Site Analysis :

and sense of place.

Some of the problems found from on campus experience.

Unfortunately due to lockdowns, the past semesters have mostly been online, therefore there have been a lack of on campus experience for me. My route at Swinburne would be first, park in the laneways next to AMDC building which is where most of the tutorials are and only access AMDC, ATC and the late lab.

Safety

Accessibility.

Due to the late tutorial sessions which finish after 9 and the lanes can get really dark.

Wayfinding and accessibility has been another issue, difficult to locate classrooms and entrances


Findings on Connectivity & Open Space (by Corina Wong)

Connectivity (Bottom) Railway causes disconnectivity, physical barrier. for example some event was happening on the other side of the train tracks I may never even realise it happening.

Open Space (Top) Added part of John street as open space because it connects to one of the open spaces and as part of it is pedestrian only. The path along the train track is narrow and dark.

9


Spaces of Meaning - Convenience of the life at Swinburne

Swinburne has provided facilities that shows commitment to diversity such as: • • •

The Multi Faith Centre Parents’ Rooms Queer Space & Women’s Room

the most frequently visited spaces would be places to have food.

10

Although there are cafes and restaurants, I realised student tends to bring their own food to uni therefore kitchens with microwaves and hot water become an important facility to have. After exploring throughout the campus I found we actually have small kitchens in various buildings that barely anyone

knows, including AMDC and ATC building. Upon visiting them I›ve realised one of the problem being lack of signs and wayfinding, they are mostly hidden behind doors and in the corners. This is also an issue for many rooms in swinburne buildings such as the labs at ATC building.


Key Findings (by Sean Yu)

John street and Wakefield street are more pedestrian friendly and being utilised by university and local resident rather than retail and commercial. This could be the starting point to generate design for new amenities, new street connections and such to optimise the value and benefit for further development.

We have great opportunity to extend the nightlife pattern from Burwood rd and Glenferrie rd into the campus, which in completely different behavior on the daytime, It may be a way to design something for different user groups depending on the time they arrive campus.

1.2

Testing Ground LAYERS

Research the Past, Present and Future realities of place for the Hawthorn Campus and surroundings.

12


The Past In 1908, George and Ethel Swinburne founded Swinburne, known as the Eastern Suburbs Technical College then to provide technical education with a simple premise in mind.

The first image in the timeline (right) is a painting of George and Ethel’s vision for the college, there weren’t many tall buildings envisioned back then, for a clearer comparison, the last image on the timeline is a current photo taken from a similar angle, with the advancement of science and technology, multilevel buildings became necessary.

14


Sense of place, A poor environment can create feelings of Sense of

alienation amongst other users. This results in an area where people feel uncomfortable

belonging and Recognising the importance of cultural Social Quality

diversity is an important part when considering sense of belonging. At Swinburne we have a large portion of international students, Designing spaces in responds to cultural differences could help support them.

Collage Sense of place, Sense of belonging and Social Quality

The collage (left) focusses on the incorporation of large amount of greenery integrating with architecture within the campus. As well as creaating gathering/ bumping spaces for uses (students, staff, visitors). The circular wall and seating area represent inclusiveness. And the large glazing and platforms are to provide connectivity with surroundings and make the building more inviting.

In the 21st century, every student has the right to an inspiring physical learning environment.

22

I am aware of the physical challenges facing postsecondary institutions today – crumbling infrastructure, and students who feel isolated etc. Despite these realities, universities also contain unique tools and opportunities for confronting these issues because they have long been sites of great social transformation, and they continue to be powerful engines of innovation. I believe that Swinburne can be a powerful agent for change in making physical environments more people friendly.

Transform the atrium to a green space

An upgrade to the current roof we have at this atrium. I‘m Introducing a waterfall, fed by rainwater draining from the atrium roof of the indoor garden. This waterfall also helps cool the space and provide a more comfortable environment for people thus have this space utilises more. Also multifunctional programs will be introduced in this indoor open space.

Mid-Semester Presentation I believe Swinburne should be an inviting place that creates community. A place where individuals share respect for one another and university values. A place that encourages social engagement and creates networks where students and staff can gather, socialise, and engage in relationship building. A place that ultimately creates sense of place, belonging, and makes Swinburne a stimulating, innovative and energising place to be.

Precinct Plan Analysis

Existing site Here‘s the precinct plan with my proposed design, the three main concepts are: Firstly, to provide connectivity between the buildings the atrium and the surroundings by lifting it up.

Secondly pushing back and lowering down the BA building, broaden up the pathway next to the railway station in order to minimise any depressed feeling from walking down the narrow path next to a tall, enclosed building. Lastly to create sense of place and enhance Swinburne’s identity by introducing multifunctional programs.

Greenery

Scientific studies have proven the therapeutic effect of biodiversity on stressed minds. A lush green lawn upon entrance (below) is always a welcome sight for everyone. The garden on library building above the exhibition room (left) provides a comfortable environment for leisure.

Frame (left)

One important consideration when designing is how accessible the campus is to the larger urban network. I believe well considered campus should be easy to get to and to get through. It should be visible and identifiable from a distance. - A large, bold entry frame is designed to redefine the entrance and make it a statement from afar. If we make our campuses more accessible then they will attract students and the general public to come onto campus.

33


The goal is to Strengthen Connectivity on ground plane, creating clear connection and movement path from the pedestrian roads into the building seamlessly.

Amphitheatre underneath library

34

Lifting the building up to allow access through. To activate the plane in one location, this is been done through creating an amphitheatre underneath the library that can be used for having lunch, hosting talks and more.


Public Seating Area

The tall construction can give a sense of oppression with the narrow road. This feeling worsens at night. These would be better prevented through proper lighting and elimination of secluded areas and narrow walkways. Therefore I’ve pushed the building back, opened up a wide entry to create sense of place, moreover, by having these short walls with seats out on the walkway where the original BA footprint was, creates an inviting and relaxed atmosphere at the same time connects with the public realm.

35


To further enhance connectivity of the two buildings, a bridge towards John street was created. The use of frosted glass is to distribute uniformly and promote the flow of natural light throughout these corridors while achieving a level of visual privacy. This glass cladding provides a modern look while ensuring Eco-friendly construction.

36


37


The new program I’ve added is this Bold, 2 level space with the bottom level a canteen serving culturally diverse foods and on the top level is a multifunctional hall

New Development

38

At Swinburne we have a large portion of international students, seeing your culture represented on campus through various food options can be one way for students to settle into new and unfamiliar settings. And to have it directed accessible from the library makes it more convenient.


Multifunctional Hall

This hall can be for hosting events such as New technology exchange seminars / showcasing exhibitions and more. Its unique form and reflective material is a way to redefine the entry at the same time attract visitors as being ‘hidden’ in the lane.

Glazing

I have used a large amount of clear, frosted windows throughout the design, as glass offers not only a relief from opaque materials but an opportunity to infuse a building’s façade with fluidity and make it visually interactive.

42


Reflection From the review, there were some constructive feedback I received. Martin made a comment that circulation and space seem to be a big focus for my design which I agree, so moving on ill start focussing on the connection of my key spaces, start playing with levels and stairs. Then Lucinta commented on the building setback, she suggested to have something like a double height open space at ground plane as to recessing the entire building back, which I do understand, however the seating design is actually acting as a connection between the campus and the public realm, having the short walls and benches outside the building footprint invites the public to use this space more, saying that, I will rethink about my statement to make it clearer and more concise. At this stage of designing it is still conceptual with massing blocks. However I have developed my own interpretation of the project brief, ( responding to the UDF), researched my project‘s site context and tried to figure out my constraints to the best I could standing from a user’s perspective. The next step would be to refine both the structure and the programs utilising the existing slope and relationship with the surrounding context. 43


05.

Section One of the suggestion I received from martin was to draw out what I want people to experience. So I started to think about the atmosphere I want to create for people and heres a collage I started. Bothe the colonnade and the amphitheatre spaces are my focussing areas for this design, they are functional spaces aiming to add warmth to the camps, make socilising easier at the same time connect to the public realm.

Pre-Final Presentation I believe the future for Swinburne should be an inviting place that creates community instead of individuals, which is united by shared respect and university values. Focusing on developing social engagement and networks with common areas where they can gather, socialise, and engage in relationship building and ultimately create sense of place, sense of belonging, and making Swinburne a stimulating, innovative and energising place to be.

The overall design is based on openness, flow, and rhythm at the same time minimising barriers as the key starting point. One important consideration when designing is how accessible the campus is to the larger urban network. I believe well considered campus should be easy to get to and to get through.

The goal is to Strengthen Connectivity on ground plane, creating clear connection and movement path from the pedestrian roads into the building seamlessly. There is access from all sides to the building. On the north side, a grey space is designed to form the relationship between the building and pedestrians, railway tracks, and the lower buildings further north.

The improvement from Mid- sem presentation would be the incorporation of the new Exhibition spaces on the ground floor. With the existing slope being approx. 1.5 m lower on the northern side, the plane is lifted up another 1.5 m to form this 3m heigh exhibition floor. It doesn’t block any access since visitors can still access the building through the exhibition entrance, locate it at the entrance is designed to be a way to showcase Swinburne‘s identity to new people. 55

The original tall and rather enclosed construction can give a sense of oppression with the narrow road. These would be better prevented through elimination of secluded areas and narrow walkways. Therefore The north side of the ground floor is designed to be more permeable. Existing building BA

The new exhibition space on the ground plane furthermore opens up the space by adding transparency, at the same time more inviting. The edges of a campus are very important and shouldn’t be parking lots or large, blank walls of buildings. The campus needs to be accessible for pedestrians, bikes and public transit. Transit stops must be conveniently located next to important campus destinations. If we make our campuses more accessible then they will attract students and the general public to come onto campus. 2. View to laneway between railway & Building BA​ 57

Form Development

This new development aims to break through the traditional layout, creating a more functional core, and integrate transparent and stretched horizontal transportation, atrium, and other shared spaces. The design techniques used for the building form are through manipulation of interspersed, occluded, and split relationships of multiple volumes and allowing natural light to get through.

65


8.3

Sections

1 : 100 66


This transformation is ‘Heritage and Innovation’, I’m aiming to make it more harmoniously integrated with contemporary life through modern architectural language. Firstly by opening up the communication between inside and outside; secondly is to ‘combine’, integrating modern life, and turn it into living space full of emotions, memories, and fresh vitality. This design uses a clear vocabulary of structural elements, such as the visible ceiling structure and distinctive cores. This basic, almost archetypal, structural system allows for a flexible, playful spatial sequence. I have cut a corner section to show the different levels, key spaces, central circulation as well as the spatial relationship of the elevated new ground to the existing ground plane at the back and to the surroundings. To utilise more for the existing slope, the new ground plane is elevated slightly to create this double height exhibition space at basement with easy access from the laneway.

67


1 : 20 68


The 1:20 section is cut through the central atrium, the stairs are to access between the ground main circulation and the basement where the exhibition rooms are.

Stairs to basement

Concrete structure

Reinforced concrete is use for most of this construction for its unparalleled strength, durability, longevity and resilience. also a large amount of clear and frosted windows and skylights are used throughout the design, as glass offers not only a relief from opaque materials but an opportunity to infuse a building’s façade with fluidity and make it visually interactive.

Perspectives


Atrium

I’ve taken inspiration from urban life, and injects contemporary design aesthetics into our more than a century old campus that dates back to 1908, to create sense of place.

I want to take a moment to reflect on our experience of this built environment. Is it used throughout the day? Is this a place where you would choose to meet with your friends? Are people walking, eating, relaxing, or reading? This central atrium is created to foster social cohesion. It also unifies the building’s volumes. Lifting the building up to allow access through to all sides and to the basement 71


72


Currently there are inaccessible buildings and poorly maintained spaces that make campuses unattractive and unwelcoming. These would be better prevented through proper lighting and elimination of secluded areas and narrow walkways.   The original tall and enclosed construction of building BA can give a sense of oppression with the narrow road along the railway. To enhance permeability on ground plane, the building’s colonnade extends the public space, turning the project into an inviting presence at street level. The voids and staircases link the various functions, shaping a diverse experience where activities interweave.

73


74


Specialised programs are held in this multifunctional exhibition space right next to the main entrance. Its directly accessible from the laneway. As well as Promoting Swinburne‘s identity through showcasing exhibitions that communicate the technology and research conducted at the University.

By introducing this platform to the building, it strengthens the interactive relationship between inside and outside. People in this space can look out to the railway and Central garden further north in the leisure time of communication

75


76


Thoughts... ? Being honest this semester has been a challenge trying a new thinking method ( designing with having a key section in mind), however the structure of this studio has been rather exciting! It helped me expand my thinking. From the initial collage exercises to constantly refining our statement, it continued to help me get back to the key concept. I‘m glad with this concept I went for, as off personal experience, university campus has gradually become just a vanue I need to go to listen to lectures and tutorials. Therefore I really feel that “A poor environment can create feelings of alienation amongst other users“ and everything from the layout of the space to the material finishes can contribute towards occupant health, mood, and productivity. Therefore fulfilling individual’s needs in architecture is crucial.
