Into the Void - 4week Intensive_Upper Pool Design Research Studio_Student Work inprogress

The intent of the studio is to investigate  resource landscapes and the potential for these landscapes to be reformed through a range of material organisations and parametric behaviours that are inherently part of their being.

Resource landscapes are formed by the continuous flows of materials and energy that is driven by society’s consumptive needs. The design studio is exploring the material transformation, existing  infrastructures, and terraforming opportunities. This exploration will be conducted through a dynamic spatio-temporal framework in which the landscape is considered as a continually adaptive condition.

These explorations will be conducted through the digital and physical models.

Below are some images of the work being produced by the students.
