Maritime Sketch Idea – Modern Minimalism

The presentation was done mainly by displaying sketches to elaborate the concept. Here are the test renderings. The maritime facility’s purpose is to allow fishing boats and luxury yatchs to be repaired on a slipyard, while accomodating council’s future plans for tourist intervention.

Emergent design starts with a clean structural grid system, like a tabula rasa, subject to influences. Site analyses inform the influences, evolving the building form, accommodating function and site responses.

The design keeps evolving, responding to new issues, one after another, interacting with them, like an organism undergoing flux, a metamorphosis or an evolution to reach its ideal state. Care is taken to ensure that the form does not intrude too much into the overall Ulladulla urban fabric. Influences include site boundary, perceptive boundaries, height restrictions, terrain, etc.
