Rush Wright Associates：莫纳什大学地球科学园的设计创意来自澳大利亚维多利亚的地质地貌。该园是与地球科学家合作开发的，它为学生学习地质学、天然地舆学和大气科学供给了一种愈加直观的学习办法。
Rush Wright Associates：The Earth Sciences Garden at Monash University was inspired by the geology and geomorphology of Victoria, Australia. Develop室内设计师培训学校ed in close collaboration with earth scientists, it provides a direct method for learning about geology, physical geography and atmospheric sciences.
The plan collages a diversity of designed experiences into an ensemble that appears casual, but the arrangement of stones quickly establishes that a special form of order prevails on the site: the order of the earth below.

This drawing shows the complexity of the formal plan collage. Eschewing traditional geometry in favour of a process derived from collision and erosion, subtraction and adjacency. What binds the scene is the sense of a larger order of the stones.

The garden was a tracing of many maps. Maps of regional geomorphology, satellite images of coastlines, and iconic bends of our city river. Underlying the visible scene lies the geological map, which creates an occult coherence in the rock placement. Each brick was placed using a script created in the software programme ‘Grasshopper’, enabling a completely precise set out drawing to be made, that also established precise quantities of each brick for ordering.

The Earth Sciences Garden includes more than five hundred stone specimens arrayed in a 30-by-120-metre site, tightly bounded by campus buildings. The garden reads like a semi-natural stone field, inserted into the conventional order of the University.
The brick pattern is induced from geological maps. Brick was chosen to reference the underlying local soils, a notoriously impermeable clay. Bricks are manufactured, yet here they are arrayed, apparently randomly, like the grains of sand on the beach.
A central ephemeral marsh and cracking clay pan was inspired by the form of Lake Tarli Karng. The cracking, puddling and rippling patterns which are found in mudstones are seen as the clay pan wets and dries through the year.
While the garden appears as a “natural” setting, much of this is an illusion. Angled stones are counterbalanced with substantial footings. The rocks are not always in their natural forms but sliced, diced, crushed for use as paving and furniture.
Particular arrangements are intended not only to display individual rock specimens, but to explain their relationship to geomorphology and larger forces shaping the visible landscape. These forms create spaces in their own right, and a rustic landscape of tactility.
Plantings derive from the many ecological zones of Victoria, reflecting underlying geology, soils, rainfall and the presence or absence of fire. A horticultural consultant was engaged to assist in matching the stone types with representative eco-logical planting associations. This tells the story of the plants and their relationships to soil types, deprived from underlying geology and geomorphology.
The sign traces the outline of Victoria and Tasmania, joined as they were across the Bass Strait sea, just 15,000 years ago. Suggestive of forces shaping sea levels, the sign orientates and describes the layout of?the site.
The garden provides a direct method for learning about geology, physical geography and earth sciences. Here students explore the outcrops of hexagonal basalt columns, which are set in a pavement sliced from the same columnar formations. The angle, orientation, and specific placement of approximately 500 rock specimens tell a local geological story, while the larger arrangements create a diverse series of landscape spaces. Mapping the stones gives the students handon insights of working in the field.
The collection of rocks was arranged around tracings the shapes and forms of Victoria’s geological and geographical features. These include the rocky Gippsland and Otway coasts, the western volcanic plains, and the sandy dune fields of the Wimmera Mallee region.
