Rocky - Stage 2 - Conceptual Design

It is 2016 and while Rockhampton has a reputation for being “flood-hardened” and resilient, its long history of extended flood peaks persisting for weeks at a time has significant social and economic impacts on the region. As a city on the banks of the second largest river catchment in Australia, Rockhampton has experienced major flooding most recently in 1991, 2011, 2013, and again in 2015. 

Our task during the 'Resilient Rockhampton' project was to build a visitors centre that is both resilient and capable of evolving within the changing urban context that has been visualised.

Part two of this project I started to develop a brief and identify a chosen site to produce a conceptual design. I used mapping to identify key themes for the visitors centre and assembled those themes to create a preliminary built form.

This work was completed by hand, in Adobe Photoshop, in AutoCAD.
