Rottnest Island Authorities
Wadjemup (Rottnest Island), place across the water where the spirits, is a natural treasure, a significant historical place and with its unique ecological and geographical location. Over a calendar year, Rottnest welcomes large numbers of visitors local to Perth and international tourists. Rottnest is a real treasure of Western Australia and has been endearingly nicknamed “Rotto.” This project is a partnership between Rottnest Island Authority (RIA), the architecture and construction industry and the school of Design and the Built Environment (DBE - Curtin University). In 2020, the disciplines of Architecture and Construction Management from the school DBE will undertake design research through a project-based study. This will involve 1) designing and 2) costing for a number of student building project propositions for Rotto. Student projects will be informed through research into the past, current and future place-narratives. To examine existing and new possibilities for infrastructure designs and feasibility analysis. Rottnest Island Authority (RIA) will assemble a panel of judges to select the best final building design projects, and the awards will be presented at an online exhibition.
