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.

Melbourne is known for its strong café culture and the Coffee House embraces this culture by providing the public with rich cups of coffee from across the globe. The Coffee House is a redistribution centre for international and local coffee. The centre also includes a roastery embedded within the public canteen area. The project aims to get the public involved in the process that takes place within the coffee house and this has resulted in the public space being intertwined within the roastery, and the sorting and packaging areas. It provides this public with a space to debate ideas and prompts conversation between people from different industries.
