Flow State turns distribution into a civic process. Through Flow State, we have investigated the ways in which the hyper-efficient nature of logistics undermines social and environmental wellbeing. To go beyond this singular focus on efficiency, we have each proposed a new distribution centre in which an alternative, ethical principle has driven the design.  Though our distribution centres move different items,  they each use architecture to make distribution public. Flow State is led by Andrew Copolov, and is part of Monash Architecture Yr 3, 2021. 

Flow State acknowledges the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung and Boon Wurrung people on whose unceded lands we live and work.

Time travel bazaar is located in Dandenong south of Melbourne, which is a purely industrial area with a few hundred people. In the long run, the separation of the industrial suburb from the residential area is one of the most important issues to be solved. The goal of time travel bazaar is to provide an intersection between people, distribution centre and suburb, it develops its function as an international antique bazaar, exhibition hall combined with the distribution center. The potential of this project is to attract antique lovers and enhance the cultural atmosphere of the city.

Visitors will be able to find any vintage items in the bazaar. Time travel bazaar organically intersect functions between the public and private place, working as an ethical competitor of Amazon's distribution center model, which not only provides sellers with an integrated international sourcing channel, but also provides antique lovers with international products at discounted prices, thus strengthening the tripartite link between sellers, distribution center and buyers.
