Academic St @rmituniversity The amazingly complex new network of fine interior connections ‘excavated’ within & across a number of modern buildings, carried out by a group of architects under the coordination of @lyonsarchitecture #nmbw et al. Aldo van Eyck aimed for ‘labyrinthine clarity’ in design; this is a remarkable demonstration of 3 dimensional ‘labyrinthine complexity’ #academicstreet #campusredesign #creativeadaptation #interiorconnections #3dintegration #labyrinthineclarity #labyrinthinecomplexity #melbournearchitecture #rmitcitycampus #architecture

Auckland waterfront in Wynyard Quarter; at a great point in time as excellent grid of public domain established, people using it, new buildings coming while many working port uses still in place. Great activation by pop ups. Well judged design interventions by @tcl_studio @architectus.nz If only Barangaroo, White Bay, Dockland et al had pursued such an intelligent approach #auckland #aucklandwaterfront #aucklandarchitecture #aucklanddesign #wynyardquarter #publicspace #gantrystructure #popupplayground #traintracks #grittyurbanism #portredevelopment #workingharbour #temporaryactivation
