Project details

Overview

With a brief to create a performing arts centre on the fringe of the city's built edge in the Domain, Flux Fields digs deep into the metaphysical logic of what it feels like to experience the ebb and flow of the city.

Void and space are questioned through a cross examination of the tension-release equilibrium which shifts scales as a reflection of the architectural dynamic one is surrounded by.

Within the arts, tension is produced through repetition, dynamism, changes in pitch and deliberate shifts between consonance and dissonance, in turn creating a distinctive rhythm.

Through a series of city mappings which source their logic from calculus to linear geometry, a language to build up a 'force field' was used as a guide to design the experience of the performing arts centre.

Flux deliberately chooses to prolong the experience of high tension until the people in which a guest is seated to amplify the moment of release and gratification upon finally reaching the building's core.
