Studio Ocho Ocho Stage 2 Construction Progress

It’s been all hands on deck lately for our current experimental self-build initiative, Studio Ocho Ocho Stage 2.  With this project, not only are we exploring ideas about the contemporary work environment and co-working spaces but also varying construction methodologies.

Primarily, we’ve been experimenting on the possibilities of generating a detailed digital construction model that shows all the “stuff” needed to build.  From the timber catalogue (sections, lengths, etc) to the screws, nuts and bolts.

We also welcome Phoebe Wong to the team currently taking her Masters of Architecture at RMIT University and currently co-managing the construction and design process.

Studio Ocho Ocho Stage 2


Construction for our self-build initiative, Studio Ocho Ocho Stage 2, is now underwway.

Stage 2 is the culmination of understanding our experiments from Studio Ocho Ocho Stage1; trials and tests in our design practices SUPERSCALE and MIMAW; and our on-going research and teaching at university through the SUPERWORK Series, investigating the Future of Work.

 

 

SUPERWORK2 + PERFORMA

Patrick Macasaet will be teaching at RMIT Architecture for the Bachelor Program and Monash University Interior Architecture Program for 2016, Semester 2.

At RMIT, he will be leading the SUPERWORK2:NO TYPICAL design studio which will be the fourth iteration that explores process based experiments and contaminating typologies as part of the SUPER series .

At Monash, he will be co-teaching with Nicholas Braun and Jane Caught of SIBLING.  The design studio focuses on the traditional and informal performance in theatre/gallery contexts and subsequently, in the public realm.

SUPERNORMAL 2

Supernormal 2 Poster_RevA.ai

We are currently teaching at RMIT Architecture – Bachelor Program 2015, Semester 1 with Helen Duong.  This is the second iteration of our SUPERNORMAL Design Series exploring site investigations and process based experiment simultaneously.

The studio will expose students to two very different but we believe very complimentary design methodologies; 1. Rigorous site investigations and 2. Process-based experiments. This will allow students to examine opportunities and possibilities for the architectural project through a very particular methodical processes.  The studio is structured around  a series of workshops and exercises that privilege form making, leading to the design of a speculative suburban hybrid public library. Each exercise will focus on pure civic form, form and spatial, programmatic arrangements and form and landscape.

Bubble & Frame Demolition

We have commenced demolition on our new Creative Hubs project in Footscray.

Footscray is currently experiencing an exciting period of growth especially with its local arts scene led by the Footscray Community Arts Centre.  We’re very thrilled to be a part of this exciting time in Footscray!  Some demo progress pics!

SUPERNORMAL

super02_2

We are currently teaching at RMIT Architecture – Bachelor Program 2014 with Helen Duong.

This studio is a workshop of strategies and techniques for architectural production, influenced by type, culminating in the design of a speculative hybrid public library.  The studio aims to simultaneously expose students to two design methodologies to produce a ‘toolbox’ of strategies, techniques and ideas through rigorous site investigations, generative techniques and precedent research to inform their propositions and formulate a critical position.  The studio will attempt to  develop speculative proposals for the contemporary public library focusing on the design of; (A) the public space and civic edge, (B) form and facade, (C) spatial and programmatic arrangements.
