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.

Australians are the world's second largest consumers of textiles, buying on average 27 kilograms of new clothing and other textiles each year. COLLSIGNIA proposes a way to rethink the ‘fast fashion’ industry in the context of Melbourne and its surroundings. Melbourne's multicultural citizens donate their textiles and clothing materials to COLLSIGNIA, from where they are recycled/upgraded with new materials and designs or converted into new fabrics that are further distributed to the manufacturers in a range of industries. The building's design exemplifies how architects, designers, and communities can work together to promote successful use and re-use of various items and textiles.
