Flexion shows space can offer active and passive programs, and remain accessible to all. In today’s Castlemaine, people sit and drink coffee, enjoy meals, and read books. These activities are in ‘passive’ spaces though, and do not improve body health. In the Old Castlemaine Gaol, there are similar existing programs that involve these micro body movements, such as lifting a coffee cup, or flipping a book. This project amplifies these into macro operations within the landscape, dispersing activities into a wider field so that future development can occur in ‘leftover’ spaces on site. This strategy also subtly increases body movements, offering activity and relaxation to all in the future.
