Ground level of the silos, serves as an education of the site and its heritage through its existing conditions and plaster cast information desk.

Sub- Zoned, The Archive

Sub- Zoned investigates the relationship between a changing urban fabric and the way it is perceived. Sub- Zoned looks at how a particular “Suburbia” is formed, sustained and populated in an urban context. The City of Moreland is comprised of suburbs mixed with pockets of industrial zones, creating a dynamic landscape of blurred boundaries between these areas. The now redundant industrial zones serve as prime real estate for residential development, posing as a threat to Moreland’s industrial heritage. Sited in unused plaster silos, Sub- Zoned, The Archive aims to instil a sense of ownership and awareness in the user of this changing landscape. The communal act of archiving industrial history and the sites high vantage points aim to turn the locals into custodians of this shifting urban land.
