This studio project was undertaken in a theoretical design stream with a strong emphasis on research through design. The site was an abandoned concrete structure of a disused substation behind the bus exchange in Thorndon, Wellington. This scheme proposed that the existing concrete structure has weathered to the point that it should be considered the landscape (urbanscape) of the site. The design intervention was for an Urban Tree House. The structure was to be constructed entirely of timber and was to provide shelter and arouse the imagination of the people that live and work in the surrounding CBD.
