    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Kokkugia / Roland SNOOKS: The Composite Swarm installation is an architectural prototype exploring the relationship of robotic fabrication, composite materials, and algorithmic design. The complexity of the form and the excess of ornament make the prototype structurally efficient and minimize the amount of material used. . . .

    Patrick MACASAET (SUPERSCALE): This project considers and explores how contaminations of “other” typologies can assist in re-inventing programmatic organisation and spatial arrangements.

    advisor: Roland SNOOKS

    Michael FERREYRA: This Museum of Science Fiction and Cinematic Affects explores the possibilities of a speculative architecture that embodies cinematic affects within the context of Melbourne, through the act of designing the image and drawing from the potential source of the science-fiction genre.

    critic: Gwyllim JAHN

    Stephen ANNETT & Grant TREWELLA: Our project is not about using algorithms to optimize architectural production in any fashion. Rather, it is in pursuit of fragile qualities: ridges, spires, aperiodic pattern and the suggestion of stress that in unison form a building with a unique, singular language and character.

    critic: Vivian MITSOGIANNI

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Cameron NEWNHAM: This project explores hypothetical and speculative learning environments—specifically a design campus for RMIT University, although the ideas are universal. It is a given that there may be a necessary leap of faith in understanding the project(s), but they display in a physical manner what has recently been theorised, and extend upon many of the ideas. It is intended that through these works the ideas are pushed to the extreme—to understand the potential—even if a lesser variant may be more functional.

  • Roland SNOOKS, Behavioral Formation & Material Assemblages.
    melbourne AUSTRALIA & philadelphia PENNSYLVANIA

    The emergence of complexity theory has shifted the conceptualization of form from the macro scale to a concern for the operation of the complex systems that underlie formation. It is from the microscale local interactions of complex systems that behavioral strategies for the generation of composite materials have emerged—strategies where architectural form, structure, and ornament emerge from the design of composite material behavior. . . .

    cameron NEWNHAM & mark-henry DECRAUSAZ: locus; ethereal empirica. the fleeting nature of the elucidative platform

    In an environment incongruent to facilitated human habitation, questions can be raised about the functionality of living in the remoteness of the Australian outback. How would man navigate this hostile terrain? How would research be conducted in a landscape filled with potential hazards?
