DAB 810 Strategies, Infrastructure & Presence Week 3 Brainstorming

Decide on Issues of parliament, the design should be a response to this

What makes strategies possible & viable

Action Items

Transport a Single Idea

To use local resources, rather than transporting resources.

Decide on Issues of parliament, the design should be a response to this


Support Structure

Services Supply, Transport, Waste, Water, Power

ResourceSupply, Food, Heat, Energy

Population Housing issue

Users - It is as much about the people as the structure



How to involve users

Example; a system of managed crains to move elements around the site


Hive, Central Consciousness to System, Network of Dumb Terminals, Level of Dumbness, Arrangement of Network, Spiral, Circular Repeating, Fractal

Anarchaic, Dispersed


Massive energy use

Modes, Shipping, Air Ships, Trains, Road, Hovercraft

Utilise existing infrastructure, Repetition of elements

Digital Networks

Manergerial tool

Mapping of a digital networks

Architect of a system

Can't dissapear or remove parliament altogether

Needs to be recognised

needs to have a symbolic presence

Facilitators, colour, red is very powerful ect, style, sharp, round, square, danish..., materials, wood, concrete, steel, polycarbonate



Utilise Waste Materials

Type of framework


Factory distributed

Starting kit

New node


Sustainable, Little resources to copy & transfer tools, systems, information & ideas

Unsustainable, Precious metals will run out eventually

Monitoring Systems, Temps, Power, Integrity, Operations

Functional, Transpose Digital Precision to Physical, Perform Repetitive Tasks, Perform Specific Tasks

Simulation, Testing ground, Design Before Build, Design Tool, Simulate, Places, Cultures, Times, Occupants, Experiences, Virtual World

Media & Communication, More Interaction between Parliament & People, Interaction over Vast Distances, Mass Interactions






Modular System, Framework to be Flexible In, Flexible in Time, Flexible in Space

Design for dissassembly, Simple connections, minimal composite elements, don't intertwine materials too much, repeatable

Flexibility in Materials, New node


Transport network, use existing or new, road, rail, air, sea

Physical mobility, Flexibly Morph as opposed to physically swapping. (school morphs to library)

Digital Network

Communication & management systems

Elements to distribute, Static Distributed forms

Mobile elements, Physically Swap or move, Moving site, moving elements on site, Mobility Through Connection, Flexible adaption, Users, What the user Needs from the space, Context, What the space needs from the context

Other strategies to facilitate the main strategy

Urban close range mobile system that rotates with others around an urban epicentre

Materials, Physically mobile?, Structures Roll up?, Armadillo, Heatherwick bridge, Light Weight, Inflatable, Put it on logs and roll the bastard.

What if parliamentary services were distributed across Canberra?, How would this affect the city? Satellite towns with a specific purpose?, Currently buildings exist on a main axis - created a semi-segregated city, What public spaces can be created between these "satellite towns"?

What if various widely used "services" could be altered to fit one "shell" which can be moved around a parliamentary campus?, Structural shell with modules that move/ fit together / interact, Position / alter these due to problems at the time / services needed

Travelling politics - a campaign tool?, A mobile government can assist areas in need, How do you relate the mobile architecture to the community its in? How does it differ in each area?, How are politicians marketed?, Should politics be more community based?

Nomadic politics (due to natural disasters?), Create dispersed architecture forms in different areas?, Like Dr Who's tardis; how they travel in space and time, What does parliament mean if its nomadic; at the moment its quite traditional - how would this change?

DAB 810 Strategies Week 2 Brainstorming


A facilitator for other strategies

Can eliminate distance

Imperminant, Can be swicthed on or off, Whenever you need it, More than temporary

Augmented reality, Virtual Elements

Personal, Relies On user inputs, TRON, Personalised, People populate spaces with themselves

Alternate layer


Is as much what you want to block or take away ass what you want to add.

Place is the user and users are the inputs, Replicate the virtual around the physical

Can be separated from physical

Simulation or function

Streamlines user experiance, Cutting out irrelivant

Internet, Online Capitol


Saved States

UDVECE, The bit in minority report where his eyes are identified in the shopping mall and all the ads tailor to suite him.


Main Mobile System, Smalle units dock within it

Move anything, Buildings, Ideas, Resources, Users

Transitions between Elements

Changes in proximity to elements

Energy of transportation

Personal vs Group Mobility

Elements moving, Users moving

Virtual Mobility, Moving through perception

Static Mobility, Mobility through distribution of static forms

Changes within, Change of self


Vernacular flexibility, Mostly additions, Subtractions?, form of adaption

Water, Plasticity, Liquid Flexibility


Elements to flex, Temp, Light, Emotions, Sounds, Ideas, Heat, Humidity, Time

Flexible user times, Needs to be flexible to them

Modular, Spaces, Systems, Lego

Varying degrees of flexibility

Gumby, LSD, Flexible states of mind

Adaption, CH2, Self adaption

Chain Reation, Elements influence and react to one another

Rubber Beams, Physical flexibility

Interactivity with users, Motivation, Saved States


Virtual Duplication



Virtuality, Through distribution

Anarchaic vs hive mind

Distribute wealth & surplus
