ARCH-HIVE

ARCH-HIVE

I HAVE BECOME LIKE A BOWERBIRD, METICULOUSLY GATHERING SOURCES AND IMAGES TO CREATE MY BEEHIVE ARCHIVE. THIS ARCHITECTURAL HIVE OF PRODUCTIVITY CONTAINS STUDIO SPACE FOR CURRENT RMIT DESIGN AND ARCHITECTURE STUDENTS. THE BOTTOM SECTION OF THE BUILDING AND THE CRYPT HOUSE AN EXTENSIVE DESIGN LIBRARY, ETERNALLY STORING BOOKS, A PHYSICALLY DYING MEDIA. THE BUILDINGS CIRCULATION WILL BE DIRECTED THROUGH A SERIES OF INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL LANDSCAPES INCLUDING AN ATRIUM, HANGING GARDEN AND ROOF GARDEN. CROWNING THE BUILDING CONTAINED IN THE LANTERN IS AN URBAN BEEHIVE. A LARGE BELL TOWER THAT FLOWS MELLIFLUOUSLY ABOVE THE SURROUNDING BUILDINGS ACTING AS A MARKER FOR THIS LAND LOCKED SITE.
