Your weekly journey into deep space

13 Feb, 2019

This week we’d love you to venture out past the vast and edgeless spaces of your mind. Once there, we request you recall the most inventive large scale activations or space usage you’ve ever seen — nationally, internationally or in your dreams — and then share them with us! We have a HUGE space coming up, so big it’s going to require an electric imagination; we’re thinking markets, installations, projections, epic film clips, basically sprawling EVERYTHING.

Picture sky-high roller-doors, trusses and structural places to hang your ideas off, one-million sky lights, level floor space, all with a sea breeze thrown in.

Don’t be shy, is there something you’d do with as much space as you could imagine?

Get in touch with your thoughts, sarah@spacemarket.com.au.

Until next week,

The runner-up design of the Sydney Opera House by the Philedelphia Collaborative group

INTERESTING STUFF

We’ll use this section to share some tidbits we’ve come across the last week from you, our tenants, and the www.

+ Sydney Opera House: the designs that didn’t make it — in pictures

It’s near impossible to imagine anything but Jørn Utzon’s iconic concrete shells, but who were the other 199 entries to design Sydney’s Opera House in 1956? A UK-based creative studio have worked with Venezuelan architecture specialists Projection Comunicación Arquitectónica to recreate renders of seven of those entries.

+ Prince Leonard Casley, OG space defender and founder of the micro-nation Hutt River Province passed away today

+ Have you listened to this incredible two-part podcast on the failed Modernist “future city” of Bijlmermeer in Amsterdam? Modelled on the principles of Le Corbusier and the International Congress of International Architecture it was an epic experiment in the idea of zoning but also in human behaviour.

+ An oldie but a goodie from Assemble Papers: “Cities are responsible for at least 70% of these toxic emissions – but they are also the places where great efficiencies can be made. Maitiú Ward speaks to Paul Donegan about how we can fix Australia’s “broken” cities in City Limits: interview with Paul Donegan

+ Food waste warriors Oz Harvest have just released their innovative Food App, “The app is designed to connect local businesses with charities in need on a regular and ongoing basis”. If you own a food business or know someone whose food waste could go to those in need, sign up via the link above.

+ As a sign of where things are going, The Serpentine Galleries, Google Arts & Culture and trustee David Adjaye have released a call “for augmented reality (AR) architecture proposals to run alongside the 2019 Serpentine Pavilion this summer. Applicants are asked to propose "imaginary city spaces and speculations on the built environment to be developed and experienced”. The call invites applicants to consider AR as a digital layer that offers new opportunities to design, visualise and experience.”
