In a rendition called Suburb Series, architects Lauren O’Donnell & Adam Dwyer from ODD Studio, draw Melbourne suburbs, viewed from above.
Each drawing is a static image, deep in information about, planning, history, geography, construction, solar and time. Pieced together from a blend of archived maps and aerial photographs, the drawings embed a personal emotion, felt with the rich belonging to a connection of place.
Fitzroy was planned as Melbourne’s first suburb, laid out in a grid plan and is characterised by a rectangular grid of medium-sized streets and narrow back lanes. Its built form is a legacy of its early history from a mixture of land uses, producing a diverse range of typologies and scales. Our rendition illustrates the parameters of Nicholson St to Napier St, highlighting the infamous Rose St Artist’s Market, Brunswick St and Fitzroy Swimming Pool.
Drawn on the date of the autumnal equinox, the piece captures the sun directly over the equator, marking the beginning of the fall when the sun is at its lowest point and the time when the spectacle of shadow is most present across the city. The render reveals this active relationship of ‘Shadow’ and ‘Light’ in Melbourne's public spaces, arterial streets, and residences.
As the city’s urban settlement is evolving, Fitzroyprovides a memory of which shadows are cast from the year 2021.
