WYNDHAM GATEWAY PROJECT

Drawing inspiration from both the site’s context and several precedents, which all have greatly shifted the architectural discourse either by blurring the boundary between interior and exterior space, interweaving urban structure into existing ecosystem, or producing an adaptive system using the latest technologies; 396463437%0*368,)"$  " $-7%;,30)7-8)'3:)6-2+7869'896)8,%8'322)'878,)-22)6838,)398)674%')03'%07-8)83-8796&%2%(.%')2'-)7%68-C'-%0'327869'87832%896%00%2(7'%4)%2( 703;6,=8,183,-+,74))(2:-6321)28%0)0)1)28779',%76%-2*%00%2(7920-+,8;)6)C08)6)((96-2+(-+-8%013()00-2+%2(;)6)%'')289%8)(&=%7978%-2%&0)7869'896)8,%8-74)61)%&0)7)0*6)'='0%&0)%2( composed primarily of natural materials - bamboo. TraďŹƒc paths and a semi-underground cafĂŠ are integrated into the structure that serves as a daily commuting, relaxing and socialising space. Hence aiming to slow down the paces of passersby in contrast to the highway, it also links neighbouring areas both in terms of providing traďŹƒc routes and attracts people from the tourist districts, not to mention providing drivers entering Wyndham City with a non-glaring yet ever-dramatic visual experience as well. Both digital and physical model were studied throughout the design process as a way to experiment and understand the construction details.

BARLOW MOTORS

BARLOW MOTORS, WORKSHOP, CAR PARK, & CAFE

The building of Barlow Motors is inspired by the car brand â&#x20AC;&#x153;Smart.â&#x20AC;? This car is famous of its small size which allows cars be able to have fuel-eďŹ&#x192;cient. Another design inspiration is drawn by the concept of Smart Car - compact. In order to cooperate the ideas of â&#x20AC;&#x153;compactâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;size,â&#x20AC;? volumetric boxes are adopted.â&#x20AC;?

Not only merging these boxes to form the outline of the building, the indoor space like oďŹ&#x192;ces, toilets, and lunchroom also have their own box-like shape in indoors. Higher ceiling height emphases the form of indoor boxes. In terms of sustainability approach, natural sunlight shines showroom and staďŹ&#x20AC;7B;36/-2+%2(6)7874%')7*631+6392(D336837)'32(D336)%2;,-0)7792%2+0)-7'%6)*900=789(-)()68%-2&3<)7%6)7)8&%'/83 avoid summer sunlight penetrate through the double glazing windows. This eďŹ&#x20AC;ectively reduces heavy heat gain to this commercial building. Another sustainable design is - Labyrinth cooling system is adopted to stabilise the temperature of building indoor air temperature.

Apartment box sets back form northern facade, and an indoor viewing garden buďŹ&#x20AC;ers the western sunlight. During oďŹ&#x20AC; hours, building accessibility is located at the entrance of Exhibition Street. Building facades are designed for welcoming visitors. Some extruded windows and large see-through window facing this little lane to form a safe space.

UNEARTHING TIME

THE RIVER IS BLUE AND THE LAND IS GREEN

A STORY OF JUNGLES

SMALL VILLAGES ARE THE SPOTS IN THE GREEN ALONG THE RIVER

THE PEOPLE FROM THE VILLAGES DRINK THE FRESH WATER PLAY AROUND THE RIVER

YOU TAKE A PUNT TO HERRING ISLAND YOU LAND ON A GREENERY WORLD

YOU CAN SEE A ROW O TREES IN FRONT OF YOU

SOON, THE LAND HAS GRID ON IT, AND THE RIVER TURNS BROWN

THE WOODEN STICKS WALL IS LEADING YOU TO EXPLORE THE MYSTERY OF THIS LAND

BY THE COLOUR AND TEXTURE OF THE SUN

YOU LAND ON THE GROUND AND WALK AROUND THE NARROW CORRIDOR ALONG THE GIANT WALLS

IN THE DISTANCE, THERE IS AN ENORMOUS THATCH BEHIND THE TREES

YOU KEEP GOING

ON THE WAY TO THE THATCH, THE ABUNDANT TREES SURROUND YOU

YOU GET CLOSE TO THE RIVER

YOU ARE WELCOME BY A THATCH VILLAGE

YOU SOAK YOURSELF IN THE WATER OF THE RIVER

YOU WALK DOWN INTO THE VILLAGE

LISTEN TO THE STORY OF THE RIVER

SOME ABORIGINES ARE SINGING IN THE CENTRE OF THE YARD

THEN YOU COME TO THE PLATFORM

YOU LOOK AROUND, YOU ARE SURROUNDED BY A SERIES OF WALLS

YOU WONDER WHAT THEY ARE FOR? DEFENSE? PROTECTION? ATTACK? SAFETY? UNEASE?

SUDDENLY,YOU ARE SHOCKED BY THE URBAN SKYLINE

BEHIND THE DANCING ABORIGINES, THE ENORMOUS THATCH IS CALLING YOU

SO YOU LEAVE

YOU WALK CLOSE TO THE THATCH

INDIGENOUS SON LINGERS AROUND IN THE AIR YOU WONDER IF THIS IS A DREAM

SUDDENLY A STRONG WIND BLOWS

WHEN YOU ARE AT THE END OF THE WALL, YOU ARE STANDING ABOVE THE AQUATIC PLANTS

YOU SHELTER FROM THE WIND BY HIDING THROUGH THE NARROW GATE

THE SON HAS BEEN FAR AWAY FROM YOU AND THE CAR NOISE FROM THE URBAN JUNGLE IS LOUDER AND LOUDER

INSIDE THE THATCH, YOU FIND A RIVER IS RUNNING ON THE GROUND

YOU FEEL FEAR

YOU SEE A ROPE AND YOU CLIME UP

THEN YOU REALIZE IT IS TALKING A STORY ABOUT THE RIVER AND THIS LAND

CLIMATE CRISIS HAT PIECE

“We believe there is compelling evidence that damage to humans and the worldwide environment, is of such magnitude and seriousness that new principles for conducting human activities are necessary.” Wingspread Conference Center.  January 1998. The worldwide Environmental Crisis is showing that our environment is in grave trouble. The causes are many but primarily include human-created environmental devastation. Such as massive destruction of habitats, unsustainable energy usage, and over produced waste, to name some of the major ones. There are all one with gargantuan technologies that leaves behind unmitigated devastation. In this regard, here is a hat pieces design work intends to call for environmental awareness. In order to emphasis the relationship between natural hazards and humans - a hurricane image is designed. By winding this hurricane on human’s body to impose the interaction of humans and environment.
