NewSpace by Rachel Eng

In reaction to tired and underutilized sites in Newcastle, this project aims to experiment on civic architecture with intimate notions in the thinking of Zumthor – “to observe what is concrete, correct what is wrong and to create anew what is missing.”

The driving programme is University of Newcastle City Campus – commissioned as NewSpace, a digital extension of the Faculty of Business and Law.

In response to historical research of the site, severed connections on Hunter and Darby Street and the impending removal of the heavy rail, this scheme will take a play on unexpected perspective in a utilitarian site.
