Urban Void

Design Research Studio, RMIT University

The focus of the Urban Void studio is the design of Melbourne’s Urban Voids: civic precedents that informed them, site response, historical origins, and social repercussions of their positions in the Melbourne Grid.

Precedent Research includes:
-Olmstead’s Central Park, New York,
-Michelangelo’s Capitoline Hill, Rome,
-LAB Architecture’s Federation Square, Melbourne, and
-Contemporary Spanish urban spaces, will be discussion points towards the spatial design of Urban Places, and the social dynamics provoked by their relationships to the urban field.

Lower pool students will develop a basic skill set including site measuring, scaled hand drawing and AutoCAD drawing as well as physical modelling of selected Melbourne Voids - Federation Square, State Library Forecourt, RMIT Building 01Entrance Court, and Dockland’s Park. Understanding of constraints and rationale of these sites will inform principals and processes in the design of the former CUB urban void site.
