The Theory

Philosophy: "Architecture spaces embody the chaos and continuity of the people that use it." 

Derived from the work of Zaha Hadid, focusing on the Maxxi Museum. Zaha Hadid's work aims to embody the life of the people that use her buildings; common themes of fluidity and mayhem due to inclusion of multiple perspectives, are evident in her architecture. 

The chosen phrases and shapes: 

Dynamic and Interactive Space - just as students and staff at a school interact and both social and academic aspects remain dynamic, the shape flows but is constantly changing direction, and linked with each component at unexpected points. This encapsulates the life of the people that will use this building. 

Fragmented Geometry Embodies Chaos - a combination of shapes of similar geometry but differing in size, height and angles, the shape represents the chaos of student and staff life. 

Textures Chosen

Location - between NIDA and Squarehouse, over Anzac Parade 

Revised Plan/Section

Draft Lumion Environment and Moving Element

Moving Element: one room of the building is raised and lowered to allow access to the second level terrace of the Squarehouse and into the School of Architecture.

The Moving Element - Final

Entrance building linking architecture school to Squarehouse. The outer facade of this component is glass, hence moving down and up changes the view of the students/staff from inside the building. This represents the continuity of the building and learning environment between the architecture school and Squarehouse. The component is still part of the school but as it lowers, also becomes attached to the Squarehouse. This embodies the notion that learning architecture continues outside of the classroom and school.  

5 Real Time Images & Aerial View Shot- Final Submission

Aerial View: Connection to Squarehouse and NIDA Performing Arts Centre, stretches over Anzac Parade. 

Inspiration from roof details of Maxxi Museum by Zaha Hadid. The columns accentuate the fluidity of the structure whilst the curves highlight the dynamic changing of direction. 

Perspective View. (Gallery [front left], studio spaces [bottom right] and library [back left] can be seen. All spaces are connected and organised in a stream, similar to the open layout of Maxxi Museum. The studio spaces and lecture theatres are placed in the triangular prism structures to encourage the "chaos" of interactive/open learning. Students can share ideas, presenting multiple perspectives. 

Staircases inspired by Zaha Hadid's staircases in Maxxi Museum. A fluid yet dynamic form which accentuates the overall shape of the building.

Week 1 EXP 3 - THE 18 SKETCHES

Article: MAXXI Museum by Zaha Hadid

  • Concrete curved walls, suspended black staircases, open ceiling 
  • Architect Intention: 'a new fluid kind of spatiality of multiple perspective points and fragmented geometry, designed to embody the chaotic fluidity of modern life'.

PHILOSOPHY:  Architecture spaces embody the chaos and continuity of the people that use it.
