Monash Art Design & Architecture

City growth is generally related with changes in program and activities. The aim on this studio is to re-program a particular site Melbourne through a specific strategy: permeating the differences between architecture and landscape architecture.

The intention is to establish clear and narrow relationships between these two disciplines as well as to explore how the perception and experience of urban space can be influenced by the ambiguous spatiality that emerges when blending them.

The development of this speculation will take place in Prahran, where students will engage with the proposed exploration.

In this studio, 2nd and 3rd year students are challenged with the task of reflecting on a site oriented project that acknowledges the importance of the redefinition of existing programs through a strategy determined to strengthen the importance of open spaces in the urban fabric.

Reprograming Landscapes
Jong Hoon Kim, Entrance of the Museum of Multimedia
2012

Capturing the light quality of interior space. Pattern of the natural light has a role of way finding to the audiences of the Museum. Considering the fact that the exhibition rooms of Multimedia Museum has to create quite a dark space for exhibition, the light sources manipulated as long-thin stripes, which follows the dynamic expression of entire volume.

Jong Hoon Kim, Courtyard between Museum and café, restaurant
2012

Capturing the courtyard at the centre of museum. The courtyard expresses the transition from exterior to interior space between two major volumes. The courtyard provides a public space, where visitors of Museum can share their experiences.

Yawen Hu, Plans
2012

My concept involves several aspects of consideration. The first pertains to the division of the site according to key access points on each of the corners of the rectangle. An ‘X’ shape pedestrian pathway defines the relationships of the built structures on the site.

Yawen Hu, Section cut of the gallery
2012

The gallery and cinema form a cluster at the centre of the site where the paths cross over. This allows for open spaces surrounding these buildings and sightlines through the site to the neighbouring shops and businesses.

Small art house cinema, maintains 150 sites inside.

The use of angles and geometric shapes in the site are derived from the shapes of the rooftops of the surrounding buildings.

I wanted to convey the built environment through the graphic layout of the site, and thus it can function as a kind of artwork in its own right, which also refers to the contemporary art gallery at the centre of the site.

It is important that the site remains open and not closed to create a sense of public access and space in an area of high-density buildings. In this way I have provided various lawn areas for public use, an outdoor cinema and outdoor seating for the cafes and restaurant.

Another important part of my concept was to remove vehicles from the site and locate all parking underneath. I have created a visual link to the carpark through two glassed walk areas in the centre of the site.
