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.

Against the backdrop of a growing intake and generation of information with over-monitoring technology by the companies like Amazon in the age of big data, Dandenong Urban Archive is an ethical responder, developing a distribution center consisting of a multi-media archive and a data broadcasting system. The information / data in the archive is not extracted unilaterally, but can be usefully shared and read in various ways.
