4Temporal diagram of site use
Spatial use of the site with legend
The site analysis consisted of several aspects of the site, ranging from history to movement in the site. Here my contribution to the analysis, action, is presented in form of a diagram showing spatial use and one showing intensity of use during the day.
One aspect from the site analysis which becameimportant during my continuing work was the linear movement across the site. How it mainly functions as a passageway.
Task 01 - Site Analysis
5Drawing of section A-A
Plan drawing of model
The notion of the frame and the grid as structural, rigid and strong became starting point of this exercise. In opposition to this idea the model instead explores a sense of flight and lightness. Great planes hover within the structure, defying the inevitable pull of gravity.

Task 02 - Form: Frame and Grid
6The model plays with a mode of infinite landscape, providing no apex, no summit and no viewpoint to make the whole landscape clear. Just the stark horizon as one climbs the ramps gently lifting from the ground.

Task 03 - Form: Landform
7The technique of disjunction is applied to the landform and spatial composition. A violence has taken place. These ramps and planes break free from the ground, hang sus-pended, tilts in the aftermath.

Task 05 - Spatio-Temporal NarrativeProgram: Meet
9Plan drawing extracted from the collage
The superimposition enclose the humans, lightly touches the shoulder and treats boundaries as meeting points.
The plan above, extracted from the collage, captures these intersections and boundaries. Forms are left open to convey an open-endedness for chance.

Task 06 - Superimposition
In the final project the work of the semester comestogether. The hovering planes, the summitless but elevated ground and the violent collision meets the undulated lower ground. No line of movement through the site is linear. The possibilities grow at every turn on your way. A multitude of paths touch upon each other, thenseparates. In all the design induce a chance to meet; form, surrounding, people.

Full site section. The design connects to Union house,left and Melbourne School of Design, right.
Task 07 - Final ProjectFull site presentations
Full site plan in collage with Union House to the left. Below are three diagramsLeft: main entry points and how they look onto the site.Middle: Binomial trees growing from these points showing the rapid growth of possibilities in moving through the site.Right: Imagined movements through the site.
