Rocky - Stage 3 - Visitors Center

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 three of this project saw the realisation of the concept in a complete design and model.

This work was completed by hand, in Adobe Photoshop and in AutoCAD. Model was made with by hand with the aid of laser cutter.
