Flowstate是一个3000多平方米的城市更新项目，它模糊了建筑与景观、剧院与公共空间的边界。通过邀标竞赛，Stukel Stone作为首席顾问将South Bank年代久远的Arbour View咖啡馆区域改造为一个充满活力、能够使用3-5年的露天展馆及创意空间。新区域由三种体验区构成，包括草地休闲区、沉浸式数字装置和充满活力的表演馆，配备有剧院幕布、技术照明设施和音响设备。

Flowstate is a 3000 sqm urban renewal project which blurs the distinctions between landscape and architecture, theatre and public space. Through an invited competition Stukel Stone were selected as the lead consultant to transform South Bank’s aging Arbour View Café precinct into a vibrant, 3-5 year long open-air pavilion and creative space. The new area comprises of three distinctive experiences including a grassy relaxation zone, an immersive digital installation, and a vibrant performance pavilion complete with theatre curtains and technical lighting and sound equipment.
设计任务是什么|What was the brief?
South Bank公司推进的这一富有远见的项目，是一个激活公共空间的新机制，促使人们讨论一个城市应该是什么样子。South Bank Corporation主席Catherin Bull AM博士说：“在世界各地，领先的公共区域正在不断演变，South Bank Corporation的职责是监督、调整和改造South Bank，让它在公共和商业层面保持相关性、可取性和令人兴奋之处。
This visionary project was devised by South Bank Corporation as a mechanism to innovate public space and stimulate conversation about what a city can and should be. “Around the world, leading public precincts are constantly evolving and it is the Corporation’s role to oversee, adapt and transform South Bank so it remains relevant, desirable and exciting both publicly and commercially,” South Bank Corporation Chair Dr Catherin Bull AM.

关键性挑战是什么|What were the key challenges?
The project’s key challenges were working with a very small budget on such a large site area, and completing the works in a set time frame, to be ready for an opening to the public. The previous use of the site also contrasted greatly with the proposed new use and the design solution needed to radically rethink the planning and circulation of the whole site.

解决方案是什么|What were the solutions?
The design approach was to provide multiple opportunities for viewer and performer relationships, both of a formal and informal or incidental nature. The existing levels of the site were carefully manipulated to activate a series of opportunities for viewers to sit, stand and assemble and a performer to command attention and take advantage of sight lines. The true nature of the habitation was yet to be seen, and the hope was that performers, artist and audience would use the site in further surprising and unexpected ways.

How is the project unique?
The first significant redevelopment in the South Bank Parklands since the award-winning River Quay in 2011, it provides a tangible demonstration of creative urban recycling in the heart of the precinct. The project was unveiled in February 2018 with a year-long multi-arts program of free creative experiences contributing to a vibrant culture of exploration and exchange across the South Bank precinct.
What are the sustainability features?
The project is inherently sustainable as it is an act of urban recycling. Public space and the existing structures have been retained but altered for a new use with minimal demolition and additional built material.
