A new idea for Brisbane: the DIGITAL(sub)TROPICAL or the theory of a union between climate and technology that allows for the global phenomena of working freely outdoors.

While based in Brisbane and exploring the DIGITAL(sub)TROPICAL theme we developed a brief and some design proposals for one DIGITAL(sub)TROPICAL space.

The site for this responsive work environment was ‘The Edge’, a unique space, adjacent to the State Library of Queensland and facing the city centre. The goals for the design were developed through the above research and a desire to create design ideas that could be replicated elsewhere in the city and state and a unique outdoor working experience that would attract the world’s creative minds to Brisbane.

We designed two proposal for ‘The Edge’
