Urban Connector - Box Hill

With current pressures of increased densification and transportation demand, the loss of vital public domain demands new typologies. The project explores the use of mobility infrastructure as activated public domain. Located within the established suburb of Box Hill, the design of an urban connector acts in re‐establishing links to the civic zone of Box Hill and re‐connects north/south links across the railway tracks. The sites changing topography suggests an exploration of three conditions along the length of the urban connector.
