Macquarie place is a small triangular park situated in the corner of the Bridge Street and Loftus Street. Governor Macquarie dignified the place as an open space in 1818. Today the park is one of the most historically significant urban spaces in Sydney. The aim of this project is to research, analyse and report the design concerns raised by the investigation of Macquarie Place Park. The design visual presentation showcased sketches, observations and design concerns which have been transformed into 2D, 3D and 4D components.
About the model
Our model presents the some of the main issues we had identified at Macquarie Place Park Through an anamorphic sculpture, it demonstrates the problems that constitute the site’s identity through fragments that represents a perspective to the negative problems affecting the place. The model presents these issues in various perspectives and also gives the lenses in which an individual can look through and start to identify the importance for a solution as a whole; what the issues form together can be seen as the very shape and identity of the park.
