SBLA Studio：In 2018 CAP (Collingwood Arts Precinct) took over the Collingwood Technical School site. CAP was to create an affordable arts space in Melbourne, that would house not-for-profit tenants, up and coming artists and art based practices.
SBLA Studio’s public realm design aimed to do the following:
1. Create a green public sanctuary within a built-up inner-city neighbourhood.
2. Present a site that values its working-class past in particular its former contribution as the Collingwood Technical School.
3. Provide a design that is flexible and open for artists to appropriate/take ownership of, to suit their individual needs.
The success of the Collingwood Yards as it operates today has much to do with the previous CEO – Marcus Westbury’s visionary approach and ambition to ensure that the artist studios are affordable, attractive to a range of tenants and sized to allow for flexibility. The CAP team deeply considered the feasibility of a diverse range of businesses and how they could support each other to ensure ongoing economic success. They secured over $15 million dollars for the social enterprise. This approach ensured that the project was feasible from the outset, prior to the creation of the public realm and retrofit of the buildings.
场地描述 Site Narrative
SBLA studio were inspired by Collingwood’s industrial heritage (in terms of functionality of the site) and the sites relationship to the nearby Birrarung (Yarra river). We were appreciative of the finer urban fabric that made this site so ‘raw’. We aimed to retain as much of the history of the former Technical School that we could and ensuring that the country on which it rests on is revealed through planting and soft surface insertions. We could see the value in the site’s building qualities and the joy that it would bring to people.
SBLA工作室受这一概念的启发，将其融入景观设计当中。设计师对如何为未来空间的用户提供可以测试的“材料”十分感兴趣，由此将空间分为两个部分：Soft Yard，由图案化的渗透性铺路材料组成，中间是一片自然草地；Hard Yard，顾名思义，主要展现从古至今的重要行业木制品和砌砖。每个院子都充当了日常活动的舞台，具有开放性和灵活性。我们将Soft Yard作为一个以种植为基础的表演空间，一个可供使用者在绿色植物中休憩的地方。Hard Yard和陡坡被作为灵活的区域，并以伟大舞蹈家Pina Bausch的形象作为支撑。
Through site investigation and research, we found that one of the technical school’s teaching method was based on the Swedish “Sloyd School” – a pedagogy based on crafts, handicraft, or handiwork. This teaching method focuses on materiality and students would experiment with different materials such as wood, brick and textiles to test a single problem, and see how that material may impact the outcome.
SBLA Studio were motivated by this concept, carrying it into our design approach for the landscape. We were particularly interested in how we could provide ‘material’ that could be tested by the users of the future space. The result was to dissect the space into two; the ‘Soft Yard’ (still to be installed) made by a patterned rug of permeable pavers with a native grassland in the centre and the ‘Hard Yard,’ (still to be installed) as its name suggest showing woodwork and bricklaying as important trades of both the past and present. Each of these yards act as stage for day to day happenings to occur with a flexibility that is open ended. We presented the soft yard as a space for planting-based performance, a place for users to sit amongst the greenery and daydream. The hard yard and escarpment were presented as areas for appropriation and supported with imagery of the great choreography Pina Bausch.
整体开放性的空间设计，可以让艺术家和承租人全情在其中进行创作并展示作品，直至被拆除并用于新的艺术活动。例如，Hard Yard的混凝土陡坡和宽阔的白墙可用来展示临时艺术装置、数字艺术、舞蹈和音乐。Soft Yard则可用于市场、时装秀、表演、集会和商品展。
Soft Yard以三棵成熟的梧桐树为特色，它们覆盖了下方的透水地面。SBLA工作室最初设计了一种以“Sloyd” 纺织图案形式的可渗透铺装地毯，未来的某一天，它将成为一系列下层植被的生长载体。它将提供一个凉爽的庭院（正如我们的概念性场地规划所显示的）。这个空间是绿色的，柔和的，与暖色的砂岩台阶、梧桐树干和未来的本土植物相呼应。
This openness to design as framework, subsequently allows artists and uses to complete the space for that phase in time until it is dismantled, only then to be prepared again. For example, the Hard Yard with its concrete escarpment and expansive blank walls is appropriated for temporary art installations, digital art, dance and music. The soft yard is used for markets, fashion parades, performance, gathering and wares.
The Soft Yard is characterised by the three mature plan trees that cloak the permeable surface below. SBLA Studio originally designed a permeable paved rug emanating a chosen “Sloyd” textile pattern. It will one day host an array of understory native grass plantings – like the species found along the Birrarung and within Yarra Bend Park. It was to provide a cooling courtyard (as evident in our conceptual site plan). The space is green and soft in appeal with warm coloured sandstone setts that tie into the bark of the plane trees and future native plantings.
现在，项目第1阶段已经建成，但Soft Yard中的Sloyd地毯和Hard Yard都还没有完成。澳大利亚的欧兹马戏团（Circus Oz ）正考虑如何将大型天幕餐厅（Spiegeltent）和邻近Hard Yard的马戏团建筑整合到此公共领域中。
Stage 01 of the project is now complete. The Soft Yard ‘Sloyd rug’ is yet to be realised, as well as the Hard Yard. Circus Oz are now considering how the Spiegeltent and the Circus Oz buildings adjacent to the Hard Yard can be integrated within the public realm.
We are confident that in time these elements will come to fruition. We believe the solid, yet malleable frame by which this design was created, is successful in drawing people to the site and supporting users and occupiers to express their individual aspirations.
