Monash Art Design & Architecture

This studio is part of an international, trans-disciplinary think tank which fosters new and innovative design collaborations that are capable of reshaping the future of our planet and transforming the global economies of the 21st century. The programme recognises that multidisciplinary thinking and collaboration are an essential competency for future innovation.

2112Ai 100YC has invited 100 of the world’s most innovative architects, including progressive international architecture schools, to propose visionary projects and master plans for the City of Maribor, Slovenia to be presented as part of European Capital of Culture event for 2012. A curated selection of the submitted master plan visions will also be exhibited in the Australian and Slovenian pavilions at the 13th Venice Architecture Biennial.

This studio will be run as an intensive design research collaboration. Students will work in teams to generate and develop design visions as per the 2112Ai 100YC brief. In addition to the nominated tutorial times, students selected for this studio will be expected to work in the allocated studio space every day. To meet the submission deadlines for the international competition and exhibitions the studio will continue through SWOTVAC and run until week 15 of the semester.

Tutors:
Prof. Nigel Bertram, Tim Schork, Lee-Anne Khor

Collaborations:
Dept. of Industrial Design students
Dept. VisCom students
External advisors and industry experts in urban design, engineering, economics, sociology, computer programming, communications, knowledge management and future technologies.
International and local artists

Times:
Tutorials 10am-1pm Monday + Thursday

Tools:
The urban design explorations will be experimenting with CityEngine software as a 3D generator. No prior knowledge is required.

2112Ai [Architectural intelligence] 100YC (100 Year City)

2112Ai 100YC
Location plan: abandoned buildings in Maribor
2012

Urban Dialects examines how the architectural language and urban identity of a city is transformed by new cultural and economic exchanges. Proposing a dynamic rental economy that operates at the scale of a room, the project explores the fine grain dialogue between existing and new urban conditions. Engaging with the universal rental/lease system and the evolving mechanisms of urban enclaves, the project creates a dynamic economic model which acts as a catalyst for new culture, allowing the city to change and adapt symbiotically with shifts over the next 100 years.

Projective planning scheme responding to growth and redundancy
2012

Future redevelopment in Maribor will be determined by a dynamic planning system that fosters, and accelerates, cycles of urban growth and decay. Rather than being a fixed spatial plan, the proposed system is dynamic and allows for intelligent feedback loops that respond to the continuous shifts in Maribor’s population, activation and use, enabling Maribor to generate, regenerate and react on a real-time basis. Cyclic Cities implements this through a new planning system that will facilitate varying speeds of urban change within specific urban areas. This will lead to intensified areas as well as areas with slower paced transformations. The meeting points and overlaps of these areas, physically and temporally, grow, decay, react and regrow in reference to each other, establishing an urban ecology for ongoing change.
