Australian city centres are in a state of rapid change. Where once the face of our built environments was a result of a pragmatic mixture of commercial, industrial, warehousing, shipping and low-income residential activity, the pressure on city authorities to compartmentalise and decentralise these functions has left subsequent development shaped by market forces driven by a consumer-aspired vision of the future.
These inner-city sites are identified three ways: Dormancy; Transition; Future. Whilst dormant they possess elements of tension and intimidation, tranquility and meditation. During transition they have a capricious aesthetic uniquely aligned with their transitionary state. The future is the reassignment that follows - a seemingly attractive but wholly prospective refit of future expectations.

This series aims to illustrate these concepts and investigate the permutable nature of Australian urban environments and societal aim of development and progress. As industries and infrastructure are replaced by intellectual and technological production our cities move resolutely from pragmatic functionality towards a vague concept called lifestyle.
