The Labyrinth Campus
Learning flow and journeys that makes you wander and lose yourself within
The Labyrinth Campus speculates on the future of an enhanced education campus prioritizing the idea of interactivity and emergence of new networks and models between tertiary learning environments and industry workplace. It examines the shift in the centre of gravity in campus design focusing on the potential of academia and industry, socializing and collaborating together. The project threads two distinct types of program groups to allow parallel access to study and work.
The project also explores movement as the main driver for learning as a programmatic, spatial and formal strategy that sees learning as a series of ‘learning flows’ investigated through procedural experiments. It takes its form from the readings and behaviour of wind systems to create types of learning narratives that overlap to lead inhabitants on constant movement flow and experiential learning journeys.
The spatial and network complexity create multiple dead ends that could facilitate individual discovery and a series of knowledge exchange spaces; becoming key social functions of the campus that spill over from different programs at multiple layers and conditions. The design forms an intriguing silhouette, a recognizable collection of buildings which forms a formal fracture in the landscape that produces vibrant learning and civic environments.
