This studio looks at CIVIC ARCHITECTURE in a big town like BENDIGO.
What is the difference between a city and a town?
What happens when a town gets pumped up? Does it become something else?
Its NOT SUBURBAN but NOT CITY, NOT SMALL TOWN NOT METROPOLIS?
We’ll design Public Buildings and Apartment Buildings for an over pumped town.
The background scenario will be Bendigo tripled in size and becoming a viable second centre to Melbourne.
This studio will NOT be URBAN PLANNING but designing places through amazing pieces architecture understood at the level of the precinct.
The studio will learn from the NOT SUBURBAN studio (Lane Zajd et al sem 1 2015) and the HCMC Underground studio (Crist Duong et al sem 1 2015). Both looked closely at the (sub)urban environment as found, and inserted the WEIRD but REAL.
