Concrete Dreams:
University of Melbourne 2015

The brief called for a masterplan of an old abandoned cement factory located in Fyansford, Geelong, Australia. Within this masterplan, an art gallery, residential complex, workshops and a running track were to be implemented.

The proposal aims to engage with the site directly: the masterplan enables the user to experience the site from many vantages: whether it be from above the perimeter, from within the silos, or from under the ground. Interventions are designed to mould within the existing terrain through enhancing qualities which were already apparent. Each segment of the brief offers a different experience of place, with each of them responding differently to their location context.
