South Hedland Shade Structure
       
     
 BRIEF  Initiated as a research project into the opportunity to employ structural timber within a regional context, the project comprises a 18m span structural timber LVL shell structure and adjoining amenities and changing rooms. A second, smaller shade structure sits nearby, providing a space for community engagement and interaction.    RESPONSIBILITIES  Computational design, documentation, contract administration
       
     
 PROJECT DESCRIPTION  The design evolved into the final form through extensive modelling using advanced generative computational design tools in an iterative process between the architectural design team and the engineering design team. Close collaboration between all members of the design teams from early in the design and fabrication process delivered an innovative project efficiently. Prefabrication included assembly of each frame in half segments with base brackets attached. The frames were jointed and lifted into place and the base welded to the base plates on the concrete buttresses.
