This model was constructed adhering to the twelve rules. It was a method of not only generating the formal qualities of a potential masterplan but also a very basic testing procedure for the operation of the twelve rules.
The Waltz of War is a Master Planning project set in Melbourne's notorious Docklands. As part of the Landscape Architecture Masters studio; GAME ON, this blog will document Brock and Ben's progress throughout the semester. The concept is derived from two sources; 1. Risk. The popular boardgame based on the strategy of war and tactical aquisition of territory. 2. OMA's competition submission for the Parc De La Villette. The objective of The Waltz of War can distilled in 5 main points; - To develop a set of rules and constraints to generate an adaptable planning system - To challenge the definition of surrounding programs (of site) and their associated infrastruction - To test scenarios across multiple interventions - To design infrastructure based on the outcomes of scenario tests - To interact to enable the constant definition and and redefinition of territory Comments and feedback appreciated.
