Out of the Blue

‘Out of the Blue’ is a design for “Surf City” in Torquay that proposes to enhance and introduce threshold conditions as a catalyst for building community resilience. Elements of the design are activated through the ephemeral nature of wind, water and sun to provide inhabitation that is in a constant state of flux. The investigation of the threshold as a spatial construct has been the driving force of this research, where the uncertain nature of ‘betweenness’ has been explored. ‘Out of the Blue’ engages with thresholds to offer an experience of spatial transition that transports and transforms.
