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.

Norstar

At SUPERSCALE, we love to diversify and get our hands on different things as much as possible.

Recently, we went on a site visit to Norstar Steel Recyclers at their head office at Laverton North where the largest steel recycling machinery in Australia will be constructed.  They process ferrous and non ferrous metal through a variety of methods to include: sorting, shredding, shearing, oxy cutting, baling and compacting.  It was a privilege to be shown around by Managing Director, Paul Sailah and giving us a detailed tour of the processes involved.

We’re very excited to be involved with this project.  We’ve always been inspired by these steel giants and we’ve admired the industrial and techy aesthetic of these things from far away.  Now, we get to help build these big boys’ toys!

Space & Prototype Prototype

We have found a new home!  Hooray!  We’re in the process of designing and moving in to our new studio space.  In light of this, we wanted the space to be, in large part, a place of desktop manufacturing experimentation.  Hence, we’ve been recently designing and prototyping 3d printed furniture components to go within our studio.  We’re trying to mix customised 3d printed components with off-the-shelf materials from the local hardware store and we’re attempting to use no glue, pegs, nails, screws, etc.  They simply slide and lock into place.  We quite like the blend of high-tech printing with lo-tech processes.

superscale

A year ago we launched MDVP as an experimental design practice to primarily continue our research from our Masters Thesis’ and since then we’ve been experimenting with quite a lot of facets of design besides architecture to include: prototyping, graphics and products.  We felt like we were still navigating our way and wanted to experiment more beyond the boundaries of architecture.  Thus, SUPERSCALE was born.  We envisioned Superscale as a massive umbrella where we can operate, test, explore and investigate through varying fields of scales, mediums and areas of design.  We’re very excited and can’t wait to launch a few things we’ve been researching and working on later in the year.  Thank you everyone!
