The Caves by Brenton Porter

PROJECT LOCATION:  South Newcastle Beach & Fletcher Park
EMAIL:  c3058694@uon.edu.au

This project has been developed out of an interest in the disconnection between our built environment and the landscape on which it exists. Propriety prevails, and as such our landscape has become increasingly shaped by liability. In response, this project both conceptually and physically proposes to violently cut through the synthetic security of the city to expose the user to the primal, sensory pleasures of vulnerability.

An aggressive penetration into the hazard dominant landscape aims to alter our perception of place, pushing beyond the ephemeral aesthetics of the built environment into an experiential perception of the cosmic tectonics that sustain our fleeting existence.
