OUTR participates in Peculiar Places Exhibition

OUTR’s “Peculiar Places” entry evolves from five individually chosen “Peculiar Places” each existing at different scales and locations world wide.

The deconstruction of these spaces into components reveals a set of design tools enabling us to begin designing spatially, allowing the design process to evolve from basic analysis.

The transformation of our “Peculiar Places” components into a layer that responds to Melbourne City Grid reconfigures the grid and tests the ability of utilising analytical data as a design tool.

The model reveals a sense of distortion, optical illusion by utilising a network like layer embedded within the existing landscape, redefining new moments of peculiarity.
