CARD SET ELEVEN+TWELVE. CAR+PARK
As the above preoccupations all dealt with a particular quality or material aspect of a building, I felt it important to put it into practice. It was my intent at the start of the cards to create a mock design project almost, as the vehicle for testing these things. As it has been alluded to above, the ways in which space is considered or the ways in which something considered to be open could be inserted into something typically considered to be closed has been of interest to me. All of these ideas started with the overarching idea of experience. I took this to be the way I and the broader community experience Perth. Ultimately this lead me to the discovery and understanding of the reliance placed on personal modes of transport and the priority give to open space. It was my opinion that the area these two occupations take away from the urban fabric, negatively contributed to the experience of Perth. How could these two aspects be combined, streamlined if you will, to be more efficient and to positively contribute to the experiences of Perth. The solution was the idea of the car+park. This was the ‘vehicle’ and a way of considering space, light, material, texture, etc. to not only better understand my own interests but the way that they could be used to contribute better architecture and better experience to the city which I live.
