                Frank Hollingsworth.  Shade Structures for Northern Australia:

                                                     A Typological Study.

Frank will be focussing on one of the many social purposes of architecture ie the creation and amplification of public spaces.  His research will examine existing shade solutions as part of urban planning and architectural strategies to mitigate heat in hotter and tropical climates. The study aims to develop a resource containing a range of options that will aid residents and local councils to address improvements in their own public spaces.


                                       Almo Troup.  Reviving Our Resources.

Almo’s study will address the resource consuming and increasingly unnecessary production of virgin building materials, to be replaced with increased use of recycled or recyclable materials. Building on information and experiences from design professionals and industry leaders in fields of waste utilisation, Almo will produce a video to illustrate how building waste can be channelled into practical and beautiful architectural objects.
