|Abstract:||Selecting an approach for assisting in the design process of SES Marrickville, I chose Babushka. I wanted to create a building where large open space was a key element taking advantage of the screen, both from close up and far away. The design of this screen comes from the inspiration of trees in Marrickville. Upon visiting the site for Marrickville SES building made me start thinking about its context, the trees of the streetscape grabbing my attention. Made from pierced titanium, the main focused on the screen design was the way in which to control the environmental aspects within the building. To control the sun orientation for the SES Marrickville screen I adjusted the pattern on each of the facades. For example, the North facade has more foliage letting in less light. To avoid issues such as glare a layer of ETFE was inserted on the interior of the screen with a gap for an air barrier. The ETFE has a bubbled effect like that of the Watercube in Beijing, having a printed pattern which helps correspond to light by diffusing the light. Each façade of the building is different in some way; titanium screen pattern altering according to the sun orientation and the system behind it either being the ETFE Diaphragm system, ETFE Lenticular system or the ETFE triple layer system. With all these systems into place this made the relationship of the SES building and the screen the interaction of shadows. These shadows will reflected onto a smooth white surface of the interior spaces, allowing the viewer to experience the space at another level.|
