New OUTR Project Release_Mornington Pier

We have released a new project to the www called Mornington Pier.
Please >>>>click here<<<<< to see more via the official OUTR website.

Description extract:
The majority of people who walk on the pier will do so out of a mix of curiosity and adventure, to be out to sea, in the elements, exposed and vulnerable. They might only ever visit it once, Others may know it intimately and use it every day. 
They are mythical structures, that connect the town to its founding...........

Call for Submissions

Remoteness is driven by memory and assumption of the unknown; when coupled with the inherent need to leave no territory unmarked, spatial boundaries fluctuate between tangible and unquantifiable processes. Remoteness is no longer a condition that can exist solely as place.

Landscape architecture engages with space, either real or perceived, and investigates the social and ecological conditions that evoke responses. Identities are shaped by landscapes that both welcome and escape the consequences of interruption. For those unable to experience place, representations allow access into an otherwise inaccessible world. Mappings of landscapes give suitable place to tangible elements - whilst also making sense of invisible conditions - grounding place within real space and time. However, as remote connectivity increases, physical displacement within the surrounding landscape becomes more prominent.

That is not to say that the physical landscape has no bearing on our perception of the world. Tangibility grounds remoteness. However, through dismantling spatial boundaries and exploring uncharted ground, is it possible to negotiate between landscapes that are physically real and
landscapes that exist in a limitless world?

Kerb 22 seeks submissions - from landscape architecture, design, as well as broader practices that challenge and explore the context of remoteness. For more information regarding submission requirements please visit our website:

Into the Void Studio Exhibition and Celebration





OUTR and the participating students would like to invite you to the "Into the Void" exhibition and celebration.

WHEN: Friday 28th March 5:30 - 7:30pm
WHERE: RMIT Design Hub, Level 5 Longroom, 150 Victoria St Carlton, Melbourne.


ABOUT

The studio is part of ongoing research being undertaken by OUTR RMIT, into resource landscapes in the LaTrobe Valley and was conducted by students.

The intent of the studio was 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.

The studio focused on the infrastructures associated to the LaTrobe Valley, in particular Loyang’s open cut brown coal mine: extending, re-programming, value adding, bolstering etc.

DATA : Live Flight tracking visualisation

With all the news lately surrounding Qantas, and this week with the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 we thought we would share this visualisation tool called Flightradar24.

We have posted on similar aircraft flight path visualisation tools before, but this one seems a lot more comprehensive, and gives you the ability to not only view almost real time traffic, but also details on plane types, airports, and weather, just to name a few. Please see below for some live examples.  


How it works
Flightradar24 is a flight tracker that shows live air traffic from around the world. Flightradar24 combines data from several data sources including ADS-B, MLAT and FAA. The ADS-B, MLAT and FAA data is aggregated together with schedule and flight status data from airlines and airports to create a unique flight tracking experience on www.flightradar24.com and in Flightradar24 apps.

Please >>>>click here<<<<< to see more via the official OUTR website.

Description extract:
Rapid prototyping technologies have historically been utilised by a range of industries (e.g. automotive) to produce precise and complex forms calculated and generated through digital modelling. This research examines the changes in architectural production that result from these digital manufacturing technologies.

New OUTR Project Release

We have released a new project to the www called Cove Knot.
Please >>>>click here<<<<< to see more via the official OUTR website.

Description extract:
'Cove Knot' symbolises the cultural interweaving of Darebin's culturally rich community through its form, and yet does not remain a mute object as it also provides a place of sanctuary. As an asset to the park it provides shelter from the sun and rain, a place on high (the Hill) for parents to watch their children at play, or a simple quite place of retreat, hence the reference to cove in the title.
