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.

The notion of overstocking, stocking excess quantities than that is required, moreover a way to end the right-on-time production and stocking. The ideology of stocking the immediate amount creates just the right amount of supply. However, in case of pandemics and shortages, stocking excessive amounts in the designed space corresponds to shortages & fluctuations in the supply chain by accommodating exceeding amounts of the fresh produce in the temperature-controlled area. Beyond the scope of overstocking, the excess space responds to disasters of other natures, such as natural disasters. Overstocking provides a flexible supply chain and more negligible carbon emissions.
