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.

This project combines 3d printing and material recycling and upcycling to produce a low cost, sustainable and more ethical alternative to housing construction.
This new construction method involves the use of modular 3d printing systems which extrude clay and polyurethane foam derived from plastic waste to form a range of new and adapted housing typologies.

The factory designed here serves as the central point from which modular printing systems and infill materials are distributed. This allows the rapid construction of houses on site at a fraction of the price and environmental cost of typical construction methods.
