A Place to Catch (SEA) Breeze in Brisbane, Australia by BLOXAS + Chian Quah

Wednesday, March 16th, 2011

This proposal has considered the climactic condition and placement of Brisbane, within it’s geographical context. Brisbane city is located approximately 21kms inland from the nearest coastal edge. Subsequently it is starved of any significant reprievable, or recurrent, sea breeze. This, coupled with Brisbane’s unforgiving sub tropical summer humidity, was the idealistic catalyst for this design concept. Slender, sculptured towers range in height depending on their topographical location.
