Spatial designers choreograph experience, inhabitation and environment in the design of places for people.

The process of imagining, forming and constructing environments
that consider space, time and sensory inhabitation.

Mixed reality is on it’s way,
Photons projected into your eyes will render 3D forms in physical space.

the floor is rubbish

May 18th, 2016

It’s getting to that point in semester when we start utilising all the workspaces to capacity. In an effort to keep it active yet still usable, we are enacting a “Floor is rubbish” policy for 11B, where anything on the floor will be treated as disposable. There are enough trollies, shelves and tables to store work of all shapes and sizes. Please clean up after yourselves, do not leave any work on the floor and clean up any trash left on the floor larger than a $2 coin. We can only expect the cleaners to vacuum. This “Floor is rubbish” policy is in effect this week. I will be keeping an eye on this and reporting back to our College heads. If you need a locker, please let me know and I will start looking into it.
