This small article is a review that was published in the CLOG: Unpublished edition last year. A Distant Architecture Admission to the International Space Station (ISS) is by way of capability; capability to get there and capability to remain there. This is no Laugier’s hut. Only 208 people have visited the ISS. Such is […]
The following text was intended to accompany the drawings that were published in the CLOG: SCI-FI issue from 2012. The drawings obviously spoke for themselves… The 100 Year Starship. What started out as an exercise in the fiscal stability needed to support such a venture, strangely enough materialised. Nobody, not even those that instigated […]
This image shows the starship that I designed for the Luminous exhibition as a triggered augmented reality (AR) 3D model. The model appears to hover above the Reid Library on the grounds of The University of Western Australia, triggered by the view of the library. The Luminous application, created by felix laboratories, can be downloaded for Apple […]
This image is a 3D Studio Max render of a starship I designed for the recently held Luminous exhibition on the grounds of the University of Western Australia. The exhibition, which is currently running, consists of augmented reality artworks triggered within the university grounds.
The Architecture of a Monstrous Space Craig William McCormack The practice of involving architects in the space program grew out of the Space Race (that mid-to-late 20th century competition between the Soviet Union and the United States of America for supremacy in space exploration), although its origins can be seen much earlier. The need for […]
This is a selection of our 1st year design studio final submissions. The introduction to the studio brief is as follows; “The earth is simply too small and fragile a basket for the human race to keep all its eggs in.” Arthur C Clarke. The year is 2100. Earth-based natural resources have been depleted to […]
This is one of my other favourites. Part of what I was trying to accomplish through this series was the expression of the sublime. I was trying to demonstrate the ultimate magnitude of Kant’s sublime. In this drawing I am attempting to describe that this characteristic is found both internally (within the starship, akin to […]
This is the first excerpt from my final design submission that I will be posting on this website. Over the next few weeks I will be posting a selection of postcards from my 100YSS book, and will on occasion provide some additional information that may or may not be either relevant or enlightening. This drawing was […]
