  3. 3. 1Baptist Place Pipe InstallationDesigning an Artful LandscapeThis project concentrated on the exploration of landscapes designed as artwork, with an emphasis on conceptualand technical advancement.An explorative and artistic design process was followed in order to create an art installation within a Melbournelaneway. This included the adoption of artistic processes and perspectives of an established artist (assigned tome was Vito Acconci), along with the invention of a recording device for the purpose of site analysis and fordiscovering entirely new outputs and possibilities outside the frame of the traditional site analysis. Our own artiststudies were conducted in response to the site, designated artist, and an assigned material (this project explorestextiles). The generation, development, and testing of a parti is what informed the overall design.The pipe installation was designed to dishevel the existing linearity of the laneway site. Abiding by the developedparti “Intimate Disorientation”, and inspired by the work and process of Acconci, existing piping on the site wasamplified into a two-dimensional running pipe pattern. The accretionary pipe formation eventually culminatesinto a three-dimensional massing of tangled piping, as though this seemingly ordinary part of the urban fabrichas developed a mind of its own. The disorienting mass of pipes envelops visitors into the space, thustransforming it.A synthesis of process work along with excerpts from technical applications.Elevation drafted on AutoCAD and rendered in Adobe Photoshop.Scaled model constructed from cardboard, wire and yellow plastecine.- 1 -

  5. 5. 3Lizard HillGarden DesignThe design of “Lizard Hill” in Flowerdale Victoria addressed the need for an entirely new living environment, after the destruction ofthe property following extensive bushfires in rural Victoria.The client’s brief included the maintenance and rehabilitation of surviving plants, the inclusion of basic amenities, along with a desirefor a lawn; water feature; artwork; deciduous shade trees; a space to grow fresh vegetables; and an orchard. The slope of the site,along with the technicalities of rebuilding also called for an area to be designated for bobcat access.The backyard terracing creates a variety of graded surfaces and alcoves. A lawn, timber deck, seating and garden areas have beendesigned to either capture the sun, or protect from wind. The steeply sloped front yard has been mass planted with shrubs and rockplants and scattered with boulders, generating a rockery which also stabilises soils. Where feasible, paths have been constructedfrom sandy gravel, to minimise hard surfaces and maximise rain water infiltration. Along with affording a natural aesthetic, thepaths have been designed so that they can be planted over and re-formed elsewhere as actual circulation patterns begin to emergethrough use. An orchard has been planted on a more level surface at the bottom of the slope and is to collect runoff from higherground. A vegetable garden has been constructed on the eastern side of the house, gaining full access to sunlight. Terracing andplanter boxes, along with potted miniature lemon trees and a herb garden collectively create a cottage garden, accessed throughthe kitchen.Most construction materials used, aimed to mimic those originally seen on site as indicated by the property owners, whilst others,along with artworks and paving patterns have been incorporated in order to create a texturally rich environment which reflectsthe personality of the owners.- 3 -
  6. 6. Lizard Hill Concept PlanPaths regain their natural form towards the back of the property passing through sheltered seating areas and intermittent ponds. With the exception of these elements and infill planting, this area has been retained to encourageregrowth and rejuvenation of existing vegetation, which will eventually begin to see a new lease of life after the fire.- 4 -4Lizard HillGarden Design
  7. 7. 5Living ArteriesDesigning for SustainabilityThe laneway network and key design sites(community hubs in red and schools in yellow).A WSUD Treatment Train (above) consisting ofconstructed wetlands, swales, and rain gardens,becomes a focus of the pedestrian area. All facilitiesand features have been designed to generate a moreefficient carbon; nitrogen; phosphorus; and hydrologicalcycle within the urban landscape.Context mapsThe design demonstrates theapplication of basic ESD andWSUD in urban, hardscapedenvironments of varying spacerequirements.The incorporation of smaller andmore economically sustainabledesign solutions within thelaneways, also highlights thatsustainable urban design neednot always be large, expensiveand out of place in the urbanenvironment in order to besuccessful.The issues of sustainability as they relate to the planning and design professions have called for a rigorous strategyof design from the conceptual to the resolved. Addressing the process of balancing resource use and conservationthrough time, the collisions of culture, ecology and development were critically explored through the mediumof a major site – The City of Yarra (COY). The COY is an inner metropolitan municipality of Melbourne, and isone of the smallest, oldest and most developed. With limited open space and a denser population leading todevelopment pressures, conflicts are abundant.“LivingArteries”explorestheideaoflanewaysasasustainablenetwork.Designedandplannedtoserveasalinkedsystem of local scale sustainable design interventions, the laneway network acts as the transport mechanism forthe steady infiltration of sustainable practices throughout the COY, before culminating into larger designateddesign sites. These strategically located design sites, in the vicinity of educational and community facilities, socialhousing and pocket parks, have been developed to demonstrate the application of Environmentally SustainableDesign (ESD), and to act as seeds for the further spread of sustainable design interventions. The communityorientated design sites seek to serve active and passive recreation, with a useable, central open space design toeffectively integrate surrounding community-oriented facilities and provide a space for community activities.Waste management, Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD), recycling, education, transport and communitybecame the ESD focus points.The case study design site in the thriving suburb of Fitzroy shows how a weed infested no through road hasbeen redesigned into a paved pedestrian and cycle way. The cluster of community and educational facilitiessurrounding the site come together into one interactive and tactile public environment as the design forms anoutdoor extension of their activity, purpose and character.28m29m30m 31m32m33m34m35m36m37m27mFitzroyPrimarySchoolFitzroyTownHallCondell St ParkSpot heightsexpressed inmetres abovesea level (ASL).- 5 -

  9. 9. 7Transit Footscray ProjectStrategic Planning for GrowthThe Transit Footscray Project seeks to establish a vision for the future development of Footscray in co-ordinance with transit-oriented development guidelines outlined by Melbourne 2030. (A 30 year urban growth,development and management plan across metropolitan Melbourne, the document has since been reformulatedas Melbourne @ Five Million. )This assignment paid particular attention to the Footscray Train Station Precinct, which forms a major innerMelbourne transport node. The vision to build upon Footscray as a vibrant activity centre and transit city wasachieved through extensive research and analysis, and the development of principles, objectives and guidelines.This contributed to the overall framework and achievement of the vision.Five main design principles informed the framework and vision:• Establishing a pedestrian network across four established precincts (refer to graphic below)• Integrating land uses across the precincts• Celebrating diversity by embracing an identity as a cultural centre• Creating viewing corridors between the precincts• Creating a central open space allowing for flexible useA re-emphasised pedestrian experience has been achieved through integrated precincts and mobility networks.Mixed use facilities and the promotion of community activity allow Footscray to build on its identity as acultural destination and redefines it as a mobility centre. A redesign of the north-west corner of the primaryredevelopment site also seeks to demonstrate the application of the administered principles and guidelines to afiner scale.For the purpose of analysis and strategy, the study site wasdeveloped into four core precincts defined as: Commercial,residential, train station and major roads.Themes derived from Strengths,Weaknesses, Opportunities & Threats(SWOT) Analysis.An arts and cultural centre, along with restaurants, shops, dwellings, and Footscraytrain station encompass one walkable and useable central open space. Wide pedestrianavenues and road crossings also serve to open the site to the surrounding environment.Framework ModelThe design aims to humanise the large scale of the project and create a colourful andvibrant access point into the site.- 7 -

  13. 13. 13Yarra-Dandenong Green WedgeLandscape Assessment and PlanningThe Yarra Valley, Yarra and Dandenong Ranges Green Wedge (YDGW) forms one of 12 designated non-urbanareas or ‘Green Wedges’ located outside Melbourne’s Urban Growth Boundary (originally defined by Melbourne2030, now known as Melbourne @ Five Million ). The Green Wedge has become the focus of a new Green WedgeManagement Plan, which seeks to protect the significant environmental and landscape values of the area andsecure it from inappropriate future development.Important functions provided by the Green Wedges include agriculture, biodiversity, recreational uses, culturalheritage and city-sustaining infrastructure. The YDGW supports and enhances the wider area of Victoria withits mosaic of farming industries. These include flowers, nursery plants, wine grapes, fruit, beef and grain. Its vitalwater catchments, temperate forests and rich biodiversity also hold an essential value, whilst attracting tourismto the area.The methodology and management process was formed by reviewing existing Geographic Information Systems(GIS) data sets, identifying conflicting land uses in the Green Wedge, implementing incentives, and rectifyinggaps and faults in the existing plan.Through a defined process of site selection, an appropriate site for a proposed new regional park in the GreenWedge was also identified. Re-established riparian vegetation and habitat corridors seek to connect isolatedareas of high biodiversity and vegetation density as they lie within the agricultural landscape. The park alsoextends the borders of the existing Yellingbo Nature Reserve, refuge to a large concentration of endangeredflora and fauna species.The study area:Situated to the North-east of metropolitanMelbourne.Analysis involved the study area being divided into six regions defined by a set of landscape characteristics(vegetation density, infrastructure, water bodies, threatened flora and fauna, elevation and landscapecharacter).

  15. 15. 15The subject centred on understanding the principles of GIS and remote sensing technologies, and theirapplication to urban planning, sustainable development, and resource management. The Parkville UrbanBiodiversity Management Plan formed a case study, using GIS as a decision support tool for landscape analysisand management.An aerial photograph of the campus was geo-referenced using ArcGIS 9.1, before new data sets were created(the data structure defined using ArcCatalog, and edited and sketched in ArcMap) using the campus aerialimage as a visual reference. Extensive map making and analysis lead to the creation of a management plan forthe campus. This was shaped and influenced by both discovered land attributes and research pertaining to thesite and to urban biodiversity.Notable campus features mapped and analysed included: Spatial distribution and density of buildings, typeand permeability of ground surfaces, tree species, prominence of flat roofed buildings and of slanted roofedbuildings, pedestrian and vehicular circulation, ground slope and aspect.Findings lent themselves to a new biodiversity management plan consisting of a series of habitat corridorsdesigned to connect the existing patches of native vegetation on campus. Many species for the replanting schemeare to be harvested from an on-site seed orchard. The installation of rainwater tanks, introduction of turf pavingin some areas, and a small grey water wetland system also form important components of the managementplan. A campus ‘Biodiversity Walk’ is designed to engage and inform students on biodiversity and its relationshipwith the urban landscape.Parkville Urban Biodiversity Management PlanManagement Planning with GISExisting campus features New biodiversity management planBiodiversity walkAerial photographshowing campusenvirons.Three-dimensional modelsHabitat gardens,corridors, and treeplanting.A three-dimensionalTriangulated Irregular Network(TIN) surface for the areaaround the Parkville campuswas used to generate a realisticsurface visualisation (models 1and 2).This determined the locationof shaded areas and where toconcentrate slope stabilisationplanting.1.2.- 15 -

  17. 17. 17Located at the confluence of The Murray River and Merri Creek in Melbourne Australia, the presence of a weirand an ineffective fish ladder at Dights Falls has called for a rock ramp redesign to more effectively allow forupstream migration of local aquatic species.The rock ramp fish ladder, designed for the Common galaxias (Galaxias maculatus ) has been fit to the followingset of design parameters:• Required fish velocity and changes to existing velocity• Required height of jumps• Attractant flow and changes to existing entrance and attractant flow• Provision of appropriate fish habitatThese were defined by determining the required living conditions of the fish species, spawning and migrationpatterns, habits and threats, along with hydraulic needs (burst, resting and preferred velocities for adults andjuveniles). Manning’s formula was applied together with other hydraulic equations, and consideration was giventoward slope, flow, width of the weir, water height over the weir, gravity, the discharge coefficient and theroughness coefficient.The surrounding site (which historically housed a flour mill) was also redesigned to form a viewing platform andpicnic space which integrates into the existing path network. Redesign and grading was kept at a minimum inorder to maintain historical and ecological integrity.Although the design has been mainly indicated through technical drawings, a model more clearly outlines thebasic design and formation of the rock ramp.Dights Falls Fish LadderSite Engineering and HydraulicsThe small and large cubes represent particles of1000mm and 500mm in size.The submerged rock ramp during high flow levels.Water profiles indicating low, medium, and high flow levels, along with a 1 in 100 year flood level.- 17 -

  19. 19. 19Grant Street PlaygroundDesigning the Urban LandscapeThe Grant Street area is a modern inner city development bordering Melbourne’s Southbank Precinct. The streetitself is overwhelmed by large apartment complexes, and is almost devoid of any activity or urban developmenton a human scale. A large barren lawn has been redesigned to enhance the streetscape, and to accommodatea children’s play area.The final design concept was generated through the experimentation and alteration of an ordinary householdobject. The object used in this process was an old phone index address book, which can be opened by selecting aletter using a metal slider. The concept was inspired by the notion of the slider passing through letters to revealrelevant names and addresses. This movement through the alphabet has been interpreted for the site throughthe design of a path system intercepted by landscape features. These features represent each letter of thealphabet, taking children on an experiential journey through landscape types. As each stop represents a part ofthe landscape, stop “F” along the path has thus become a metaphor for “forest”, and has been planted with adense cluster of trees – ideal for children’s play.Sensory, material, and tactile qualities serve to enhance the visitor experience and allow for active use andengagement within a range of demographics. The obvious theming and alphabetized features also providean effective medium for communication and education. The design fosters creativity and exploration, whilstappealing to a child’s willingness to appropriate a variety of spaces.- 19 -

  21. 21. 21Ascot Vale Housing EstateDesigning for GrowthLocated on a 17 hectare site formerly owned by Orica Research Laboratories, Ascot Vale Housing Estate has beendesigned to provide up to 280 dwellings. As the area lies within the Maribyrnong River floodplain, the designwas to incorporate effective drainage and flood mitigation works, as well as to cater for the possibility of a onein one hundred year flood event.Creating a natural refuge within suburbia, the design has coordinated floodplain management and recreationinto a wetland and a series of swales which originate from the existing concreted Ascot Vale main drain. Asporting oval originally located on the eastern boundary has been relocated to the north-west corner of the sitein order to receive the full impact of floodwater and to act as a detention basin which slowly releases waterthrough the wetland and down the swales. Similarly, urban runoff from the surrounding area is channelleddown the swales, into the wetland, and eventually released into the Maribyrnong River.The surrounding urbanised area of the site has been elevated in parts to a maximum height of three metresabove the existing ground level, leaving the swales incised, and walled with a levee constructed of local basalt.The oval relocation also provides for a more efficient connection to sporting facilities in neighbouring FairbairnPark. A wider pedestrian network thus combines areas for active and passive recreation by connecting the riverand surrounding Fairbairn Park to the sporting oval on site, the wetland, and the swales.Section showing existing water level along with moderate, high and one in one hundred year flood water levels.Mortar along with rock plants and shrubs keep the levees stabilised.The linking of green space.Metres above existing ground level.Emphasising the tributary-likenature of the swale design.Master plan showing section cuts.Flood pattern before and after.- 21 -
  22. 22. Ascot Vale Master Plan: Higher density housing to the East gives way to larger allotment sizes bordering the swales and parkland, creating a smooth gradation between suburban and natural landscapes. Theswales have thus become a living tributary of the Maribyrnong river, its riparian land above and below the levees serving as valuable green space.- 22 -2Baptist Place Pipe InstallationDesigning an Artful Landscape
  23. 23. 23Bunbury Point CampgroundConserving Natural LandscapesPortable market stalls have been designed to resemble beach shacks. The area is multi-use andextends towards a fish market, directly linked to the fishing co-operative.Planting of Norfolk Island Pine continues the planting scheme from the township (seen on theright).Restaurant and ampitheatreSiteAnalysisArea RelationshipsPlanAmpitheatre, restaurant and poolCabins, boardwalk, and vegetationre-establishmentBefore re design, Bunbury Point was a neglected, exposed site bordering the small coastal town of Apollo Bay. Agolf course, pier, marina, and fishing co-operative, along with a yacht club, stand partially derelict, connected byunfinished roads. Poor visual and pedestrian permeability, little connection to the township, and the dominanceof cyclone wire fencing also characterise the site. The redesign seeks to enhance and conserve the significantnatural, scenic and cultural landscape resources evident on the point, such as a thriving marina, scenic views, andremnants of coastal scrub and dune heathland vegetation.A paved mixed-use vehicular and pedestrian ‘hub’ located at the primary access point to the site, connects thepier, car parking areas, a pub/restaurant, open market space, and a camping ground. The golf course has beenrelocated to make way for the campground, which provides low budget accommodation for travellers passingthrough the town and along The Great Ocean Road – a popular tourist route. Planting of Melaleuca trees alongwith informal tracks structure camping allotments and circulation, while vegetated dunes around the periphery,shelter the site from wind. Dune and heathland vegetation has been both conserved and re-established alongboth the eastern and southern borders of the site where a boardwalk and elevated cabins provide for lowimpact accommodation and recreation.- 23 -Existing (left) and proposedsite elevation
